Staff Reviews

From lonely vampires to satanism and legendary creatures, the tales in Monstrous Affections are sure to satisfy every common (and uncommon) theme present in creepy stories. This anthology is bursting with engrossing darkness and humor that tips the scales of morality in this epic collection written by some of the most popular YA writers to date.

Angela Turon


“Some of these tales are moving, others terrifying. . . . Long after the last page is turned, these tales will linger in readers’ brains, in their closets, under their beds, and in the shadows.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

Predatory kraken that sing; band members and betrayed friends who happen to be demonic; harpies as likely to attract as repel. Welcome to a world where humans live side by side with monsters. Here you’ll find an architect of hell on earth, spectral boy toys, a Maori force of nature, and a landform that claims lives. Fifteen top voices in speculative fiction explore the intersection of fear and love in a haunting, at times hilarious, darkly imaginative volume.
