Editorial Reviews


"In Sarah Read's Out of Water you will find monsters with human faces and humans with monstrous hearts. There are secrets dark and deep, and dreams darker and deeper still. And there are characters who stretch their hands from haunted shores in hopes of reaching a happier one. Read's collection is filled with grim humour, heart-wrenching horror and, sometimes, dire hopes."

--Angela Slatter, author of the World Fantasy Award-winning The Bitterwood Bible and Other Recountings

"Sarah Read is one of my very favorite voices in horror and dark fantasy, and I've been waiting a long time for her to release a collection. So let me say this loud and clear: that wait was absolutely worth it. Out of Water is a gorgeous, sinister, and incredibly lovely dive into all the darkness the horror genre has to offer. Sarah knows exactly how to draw the reader in and then send chills up their spine, all while breaking their hearts. Whatever you do, don't miss this book."

--Gwendolyn Kiste, Bram Stoker Award(R)-winning author of The Rust Maidens

"Sarah Read's short stories are wonderfully creepy, heartbreaking, scary, and delightful! Highly recommended!"

--Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of V-Wars and Glimpse

"Read's stories left me emotionally wrought and viscerally disturbed. With unforgettable imagery and characters that come to life on the page, Out of Water is one of the best collections I've read this year."

--Kaaron Warren, Aurealis and Australian Shadows-award winning author of Tide of Stone
