New Dark Fantasy From Author Craig DiLouie

One-of-Us-by-Craig-DiLouieOne of Us debuts Craig DiLouie’s dark fantasy novel presents a fresh take on prejudice and the misunderstood monster

In Craig DiLouie’s One of Us, a disease produces a generation of monsters growing up in ramshackle orphanages in the Deep South, who must find a way to fit in or fight for their birthright. The result is a Southern Gothic monster story described by Claire North (84K) as “The Girl with All the Gifts meets To Kill a Mockingbird” and Peter Clines (Paradox Bound) as “disturbing, beautiful.” They call it the plague A generation of children born with extreme genetic mutations.

They call it a home But it’s a place of neglect and forced labor. They call him freak But Dog is just a boy who wants to be treated as normal. They call them dangerous They might be right. With appeal to adult literary, science fiction, dark fantasy, and horror readers, this misunderstood monster novel carries important themes, including prejudice and what makes a monster a monster. One of Us is a mash-up of traditional Southern Gothic—earthy, dark, taboo, and often dealing with prejudice and a society in decay—with a monster element. “This is not a kind book, or a gentle book, or a book that pulls its punches,” said Seanan McGuire (Every Heart a Doorway). “But it’s a powerful book, and it will change you.”
