What Moves the Dead
T. Kingfisher’s retelling of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Fall of the House of Usher” allows the classic story to expand and bear fruit. Narrated by Alex Easton, a genderqueer decorated war veteran, the tale is again set at the gloomy House of Usher, a picture of decay. Easton and their horse—a jocular pair—have arrived to visit a childhood friend who has fallen ill, but what greets them is a dilapidated estate prowled by unsettling hares and a fascinated mycologist, not to mention the Usher siblings, who look to be at death’s door. And oh, the horror—you won’t think of fungi the same way again. Readers of Mexican Gothic, be sure to pick this one up. Recommended by Mary
