Best Recent Read

It’s been a pretty great year so far. I’ve finished thirteen books at the time—21/02/2020—of typing this, and eight of the books I’ve rated on Goodreads were five-stars. I started the year with a couple revisits, so no surprise in some of the five-star ratings, but not all. My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh, My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite, The Murder List by Hank Philippi Ryan, and Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line by Deepa Anappara were all stellar stories for one reason or another, but last night I finished reading a pure master class in suspense plotting.

On January 31, 2020, Mary Higgins Clark passed at the age of 92—still writing to the end, Kiss the Girls and Make Them Cry came out in November 2019. I’d read two of her books before: A Stranger is Watching I really liked, the other one I don’t recall the title of, but it was totally geared to appease a much older audience, so I didn’t really care for it. I’d meant to give her another go and after hearing the news, I grabbed a copy of Where are the Children? It was her first novel and hooo-leee sheee-it. The story’s immediately engaging with huge stakes. A mental tug-o-war rages as the facts are presented, unravelling in the most fantastical drama (and melodrama), before reaching the big life or death struggle. 

I am in awe over how deep and twisted the story came to be, probably because I usually see most things coming, but not here. Totally blown away. 

I’m not sure how many Mary Higgins Clark books I’ll tackle moving forward—she did play to her crowd, of which I do not belong—but I can recommend this one without a second thought. The tagline on the cover declared her to be the undisputed master of suspense and at times, that probably wasn’t too far off, if at all.


Plantation Pan 
by Eddie Generous 
Genre: Science Fiction 


A cosmic horror and science fiction sequel to Arthur Machen’s masterpiece, The Great God Pan.

Centuries after Earth has become uninhabitable, the planet has rejuvenated. The Union, the organization governing the diaspora, sends a team to the mother planet with hopes of resuming life on the homeland.

For months, activity on Plantation Earth has been irregular and The Union has been receiving strange transmissions, until finally, they’ve lost contact altogether.

The Union recruits Lay Watt to be a member of the second team to go the planet’s surface. Lay finds that the close-knit crew considers her an outsider. This is a dangerous state of affairs as the team wades through humanity’s ruins to seek out the ancient source of the current disaster. As they explore, a figure on the periphery of their dreams stalks the edges of their reality and threatens to destroy all they know to be true. 





Eddie Generous is an author of Savage Beasts of the Arctic Circle, RAWR, Trouble at Camp Still Waters, Great Big Teeth, and Radio Run (all from Severed Press), Plantation Pan (from Omnium Gatherum), and several collections.
