Kindle Kult: Stephen Graham Jones, Jonathan Raab, Ottessa Moshfegh, and More

“The Last Final Girl is like Quentin Tarantino’s take on The Cabin in the Woods. Bloody, absurd, and smart. Plus, there’s a killer in a Michael Jackson mask.” – Carlton Mellick III, author of Apeshit. It’s also going for a nice $4.95 right now. Grab it while you can! My god, this looks like a romp. Just look

With the highly-anticipated release of The Immeasurable Corpse of Nature looming in the near horizon, now would be a great time to check out the book that put Christopher Slatsky on the map. Even better, Alectryomancer and Other Weird Tales  is only $2.99 on Kindle. What else could you possibly want? In case you missed it,

Kindle Kult: The Darkest of Dark Novels

This week, we’ve found some truly excellent Kindle deals on several novels frequently credited as “the darkest of all time” in lists across the Internet. While these are considered “literary” novels rather than “horror” or “weird fiction,” we can assure you the distinction is useless in this context–prepare yourself for some of the bleakest, most

Kindle Kult: Folk Horror Edition

Adam Nevill, in case you don’t already know, is the author of The Ritual–yes, the book behind the excellent folk horror film. Given that alone, there’s no reason to pass up The Reddening at a slick $4.99 on Kindle! While we’re talking high-quality folk horror, we’d be remiss to neglect this excellent little anthology for $3.99.

Kindle Crack: Thomas Bernhard, László Krasznahorkai, Richard Brautigan, and More!

Thomas Bernhard is easily one of my top twenty favorite novelists. The Loser was magnificent, and I’m quick to snatch up anything else by him as soon as it goes on sale (yes, I’m forever the penny-pincher, even when it comes to my favorite authors). I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed with Bernhard’s darkly

Kindle Crack Returns! Gwendolyn Kiste, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Shirley Jackson, and More

By popular demand, SMM’s Kindle Crack segment is back! We apologize for the unexpected hiatus, but new work schedules, editing obligations, and a fierce period of catching up on fiction writing put us more than a little behind. But now the wait is over, and your long-standing thirst for excellent kindle deals for nuts of

Kindle Crack: The Literary Edition, Featuring Thomas Pynchon, Umberto Eco, G. W. Sebald, and More

 The opening poem is a clever little lick based on the tune to “Off to See the Wizard” from The Wizard of Oz. The second features an interesting palate of shifting perspectives, but I haven’t been able to dig further yet. Helen Dewitt’s fiction reads sort of like David Foster Wallace’s, and I’m sure it’s a

Kindle Crack: Ebook Sales from Niel Gaiman, Clive Barker, Stanislaw Lem, and More

Svevo’s Zeno’s Conscience was fiercely advocated by James Joyce in its time, and you can sort of see why. Although it’s not a modernist hypertext like Ulysses and Finnegan’s Wake, it clearly habits the weird, transitory milieu of the early turn of the century. It’s one of the better “life-as-a-ridiculous-man” narratives (see Sartre’s Nausea), and it’s more than worth

Kindle Crack: Bird Box, Hill House, and Other Killer Ebooks You Can Snag Cheap

“Hey, it’s that one book that one movie on Netflix of the same title is based on!” Yes, it is. I’ve heard mixed reviews of the movie, and I know nothing about the book. It’s hot right now though, so why not? No reason not to snag it while it’s cheap. Now this one, I
