Powell's Books Presents Stephen Graham Jones & Jeremy Robert Johnson
Seamlessly blending classic horror and a dramatic narrative with sharp social commentary, THE ONLY GOOD INDIANS (Gallery/Saga Press) follows four American Indian men after a disturbing event from their youth puts them in a desperate struggle for their lives. Tracked by an entity bent on revenge, these childhood friends are helpless as the culture and traditions they left behind catch up to them in a violent, vengeful way. A tale of revenge, cultural identity, and the cost of breaking from tradition, THE ONLY GOOD INDIANS is the latest novel from the Jordan Peele of horror literature, Stephen Graham Jones.

Turner Falls is a small tourist town nestled in the hills of western Oregon, the kind of town you escape to for a vacation. When an inexplicable outbreak rapidly develops, this idyllic town becomes the epicenter of an epidemic of violence as the teenaged children of several executives from the local biotech firm become ill and aggressively murderous. Suddenly the town is on edge, and Lucy and her friends must do everything it takes just to fight through the night. Stranger Things meets World War Z in Jeremy Robert Johnson’s THE LOOP (Gallery/Saga Press), a heart-racing conspiracy thriller where a lonely young woman teams up with a group of fellow outcasts to survive the night in a town overcome by a science experiment gone wrong.
