Back in May, Shelf Talk presented readers with a series of lists I wrote featuring authors who focus their work on vampire fiction. The goal of these lists was to provide readers with new opportunities to delve into the world of vampires and hopefully get a few suggestions for ourselves (and we did, so thanks!).
It turns out that there are a lot of readers out there who like the idea of magic stories, but are maybe not so thrilled at the thought of blood sucking fiends (what’s wrong with you people?). A little research reveals an abundance of awesome fiction written by authors who feel the same anti-vampire way. Below you’ll find a few lists of authors and titles that are full of the supernatural … and very light on vampires.
Creepy Creatures: Not vampires, but pretty much every other supernatural critter you could imagine.
Blood and Iron by Elizabeth Bear
A Kiss Before the Apocalypse by Thomas E. Sniegoski
Agents of Light and Darkness by Simon R Green
Paranormal: For those who like their fiction magic-lite.
Better Read Than Dead: A Psychic Eye Mystery by Victoria Laurie
Sense of Evil by Kay Hooper
Remains of the Dead: A Ghost Dusters Mystery by Wendy Roberts
As always, we’d love to hear your suggestions!
