New Releases: May 2023


Looking for your next dark read?


This lists covers all corners of horror, from hardcore horror to books classified in other categories (thriller, fantasy, science fiction) that I think might appeal to horror readers. I've tried to make this list as comprehensive as possible, covering adult novels, non-fiction, YA, middle grade, novellas, poetry, short story collections, anthologies, graphic novels, and more. Each title is organized by publication date with the publisher and category listed. If a Goodreads link is available, that's there too. If not, I've linked the title to the publisher or author site.


As I noted, I want this list to cover everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. That said, the internet is far and wide. I am one human and it's entirely possible I've overlooked a book. If you see that this has happened, feel free to reach out using the contact form and I will add the title to this post.


Enjoy!
