Emily M. Danforth
Emily M. Danforth’s debut (YA) novel, The Miseducation Of Cameron Post, was named to numerous “best book” lists, translated into half-a-dozen languages, and adapted into a Sundance award winning feature film of the same name. Emily’s second novel, Plain Bad Heroines – a meta-gothic-sapphic-romp of nested stories and so many killer yellow jackets – will be published by HarperCollins in October 2020.
Jeremy Robert Johnson
Jeremy Robert Johnson is the author of the critically acclaimed Entropy in Bloom, In the River, and the breakthrough cult novel Skullcrack City. His latest novel, The Loop, is “unputdownable…fans of The Twilight Zone, The X-Files, and Stranger Things will be especially thrilled” (Publishers Weekly). Jeremy’s fiction has been praised by countless publications and authors such as David Wong, Chuck Palahniuk and Jack Ketchum, and has appeared internationally in numerous anthologies and magazines.
Alma Katsu writes novels that combine history and horror. Her latest are The Deep, a reimagining of the sinking of the Titanic, and The Hunger, a reimagining of the story of the Donner Party with a horror twist. The Hunger made NPR’s list of the 100 Best Horror Stories, was nominated for a Stoker and Locus Award for best horror novel, and recently won Spain’s Kelvin 505 award for Best Novel (translated). It also won the 2018 Western Heritage Award for Best Novel. Her first spy novel, Red Widow, will be published spring 2021.
Paul Tremblay is the award-winning and best-selling author of The Cabin at the End of the World, Growing Things and Other Stories, A Head Full of Ghosts, Disappearance at Devil’s Rock, and The Little Sleep. Stephen King found Paul’s new novel, Survivor Song, “absolutely riveting.
