The living dead and angry spectres haunt the travelers in two terrifying novels. Alma Katsu’s The Hunger is a supernatural re-telling of the story of the ill-fated Donner Party, a large group of families travelling by covered wagon into the most deadly and disastrous trip west in American history. USA Today says, Katsu “is at her best when she forces her readers to stare at the almost unimaginable meeting of ordinary people and extraordinary desperation, using her sharp, haunting language.” Marianne Kirby’s novel Hogtown Market is the second book in her Feral Seasons series. Picking up where Dust Bath Revival left off, it follows Henrietta Goodness, Hank to everyone who knows her, as she escapes her grim town to help her brother. If the Reborn-- the dead who rose after the great Dust Bowl-- don’t get her, the human predators will.
