A few of the books we’re most looking forward to

Bury Your Gays by Chuck Tingle is the enigmatic author’s second horror novel, which should prove to skeptics that the superstar of high-concept meme culture is serious about writing scary books. Bury Your Gays is the story of a screenwriter, Misha, who refuses to take the counsel of Hollywood execs urging him to precipitate a viral spike in attention by killing off the gay characters in the season finale of his long-running streaming series. With an Oscar nomination in play, Misha figures displeasing his overlords might cost him a moment in the spotlight and the right to be referred to as “Academy Award-winning,” but when monsters from his early career come to life and stalk him through the Hollywood hills, he realizes he may have underestimated the price of defiance.

Kim Harrison’s Totality is the second installment in her Eclipsed Evolution series, which launched with First Contact last week. Harrison is one of the pioneers behind the inescapable “romantasy” hybrid genre, with the first of her Hollows urban fantasy series featuring demoness Rachel Morgan, Dead Witch Walking, finding an instantly voracious readership when it was released 20 years ago. Evoking Octavia E. Butler’s classic Xenogensis (aka. Lilith’s Brood) trilogy, Eclipsed Evolution is the story of humanity’s encounter with otherworldly beings known as “neighbors,” whose purpose appears to be to return to earth to save it. That’s the hypothesis Dr. Renee Caisson is working with, anyway—but not everyone is open to accepting the demonic-looking creatures as planetary saviours. We’ll find out how it ends next week with Emergence.

As yet another season of summer travel rolls arrives, Gary Janetti returns to amuse travellers waiting at gates, in traffic, and wherever else your vacation turns out to be somewhat less than you’d expected. No, we’re not talking about his singular Instagram account. Janetti’s new book We Are Experiencing a Slight Delay: (tips, tales, travels) includes the Family Guy writer’s own adventures and foibles, which are as funny as readers have every right to expect—but also tips on how to get the most out of your trip.
