to be haunted
to be haunted by Aigner Loren Wilson is a horror poetry collection that speaks of the darkness lurking beneath, above, and all around. Focusing on her youth and moments in her life that have truly scared her, Wilson writes of home, race, beauty, loss, growth, and remembrance. Each poem a love letter to her shadows, demons, and the things that leave scars inside and out. It’s a collection both personal and scary, touching and frightening.
Hopeful, strange, and, at times, funny, the speculative stories in Plagued Company & Other Stories cover themes of home and the pain it can sometimes bring and the dire situations our desires can get us into. Readers can find queer relationships and queer people throughout the entire collection—both good and bad and some that exist in the in-between. Inside this debut short story collection, there’s a science fiction short story that deals with the ways of love and self in the future; a fantasy about a woman who must return home to take over her family’s magical hair salon; a fairy tale about a person who slowly turns into stone before their abusive and unsupportive family; and a fantasy about a child of the road finding home in an unlikely place. There is also a fantasy novelette included about a sentient body of armor and the occupant who resides within them.
