    Shelf Edition: Audra & Ouija

    This month our guests for Shelf Edition are Audra and Ouija, or you may know them as @ouija.doodle.reads! Audra is an avid bookworm and editor who spends the rest of her free time watching horror movies and kickboxing, and Ouija is a goldendoodle with a nose for good fiction, haunted houses, and tennis balls.  Book title links will bring you to the book page at Goodreads. Do you have any recent favorite LOHF books?  My favorite discovery of this year has been The Driver’s Seat by Muriel Spark.

    LOHF Shelf Edition: Gloria McNeely

    This month, we have our first writer for Shelf Edition! Gloria McNeely is an Irish horror writer, reviewer, bookstagrammer, and horrorlesque performer to boot. Currently querying her own demon possession novel, she’s always looking for more books to review on her dark fiction blog. Do you have any recent favorite LOHF books? Yes, I’ve recently picked up some horror anthologies edited by women that I’m excited to read. ‘Irish Ghost Stories’ edited by Rosemary Gray, and ‘Phantoms’ edited by Marie O’Regan.

Cassie is a reviewer, blogger, Etsy artist, and also reps for A Stranger Dream and Abominable Book Box. Do you have any recent favorite LOHF books? I’m also always going to recommend this forever, but INTO THE DROWNING DEEP (and the prequel novella, ROLLING IN THE DEEP) by Mira Grant (aka Seanan McGuire) are two of my absolute favs of the last couple of years. I’m super into ocean related horror, and the mermaidesque creatures in these books are so creepy and…

Providence is another favorite 2018 release. And Christa Carmen’s collection Something Borrowed, Something Bloodsoaked is fantastic. I’m really looking forward for more…

    LOHF Shelf Edition: Alex

    Several days ago, Gabino Iglesias posted an interview with author Shannon Kirk for Show Me Your Shelves  in which she shares photos of her bookshelves and answers questions from Gabino.

First up is Ladies of Horror fiction team member Alex, who kindly agreed to be the guinea pig for this segment. Do you have any recent favorite LOHF books? My most recent LOHF works have been mostly in short story collections and novellas, but I have become obsessed…
