Ruthanna Emrys |  Stories for Monsters


"I can't fathom this book being in the world.  It is a gift, a deep sea treasure netted with skill and care and brought up for all to view.  Ruthanna Emrys is a delight.  I can't wait to see what she does next."

"Winter Tide is a haunting, beautifully-crafted ballad exploring love, loss, and monsters. It delves into spirituality and history and power without losing sight of the thrilling mystery at its own heart. A glorious new addition to the rising tide of Lovecraftian counternarratives."

“An engrossing story about othering and family that turns Lovecraft fascinatingly inside out.”
