Book Friends: Kinitra Brooks

As part of our 2021 Guest of Honor weeks, the Sirens team recommends books that would be friends with a guest of honor's books. Below is a curated list of titles that we feel complement the works of Dr. Kinitra D. Brooks, scholar and editor of works such as Searching for Sycorax: Black Women’s Hauntings of Contemporary Horror, Sycorax’s Daughters, and The Lemonade Reader. If you enjoyed her work, we hope you check out these works that contemplate the quotidian horrors of Black and brown women; intersections of oppression; zombies, haints, and things that go bump in the night; women’s fabulist powers; deconstructing power narratives; witchery; and more creatures to feed your nightmares.


Book Friends: Joamette Gil

As part of our 2021 Guest of Honor weeks, the Sirens team recommends books that would be friends with a guest of honor's books. Below is a curated list of titles that we feel complement the works of Joamette Gil, the head witch at P&M Press and the editor of the anthologies Power & Magic: The Queer Witch Comics Anthology, Heartwood: Non-binary Tales of Sylvan Fantasy and Power & Magic: Immortal Souls. If you enjoyed her work, we hope you check out these other comics and graphic novels centering BIPOC and queer voices; sylvan fantasies of getting lost in the woods; works upending tropes you thought you knew, broad definitions of heroism; spectacular artwork and amazing lettering; plenty of witchery; and settings of transformations and finding yourself.


Book Friends: Fonda Lee

As part of our 2021 Guest of Honor weeks, the Sirens team recommends books that would be friends with a guest of honor's books. Below is a curated list of titles that we feel complement the works of Fonda Lee, author of the Green Bone Saga including Jade City and Jade War, as well as YA sci-fi novels Exo, Zeroboxer, and Crossfire.  If you enjoyed her work, we hope you check out these other epic fantasy stories with amazing worldbuilding with themes of family, duty, and codes of honor; badass women, interrogations of toxic masculinity, and deadly negotiations; swords, galactic war, and plenty of politics.

Book Friends: Sarah Gailey

Below is a curated list of titles that we feel complement the works of Sarah Gailey, author of American Hippo, The Fisher of Bones, Magic for Liars, Upright Women Wanted and When We Were Magic.  If you enjoyed their work, we hope you check out these other reads—short fiction and super-smart non-fiction in addition to novels—that feature badass queer protagonists, hope, and discovering yourself; contemporary noir, witchery, and weird West; impossible things, reclaimed stories, and truly awesome animals.

Book Friends: Rin Chupeco

Reintroducing… book friends! As part of our 2021 Guest of Honor weeks, the Sirens team recommends books that would be friends with a guest of honor's books. Below is a curated list of titles that we feel complement the works of Rin Chupeco, author of Wicked As You Wish, the Bone Witch trilogy, the Never Tilting World series, and The Girl from the Well duology.  If you enjoyed their work, we hope you check out these other reads that feature contemporary fairy-tale retellings; explorations of systemic racism, feminism, and villainy; awesome queer characters; really good book boyfriends; ghosts; snarky phoenixes; and the occasional second-world high fantasy.
