Tsalagi should never have to live on human blood, but sometimes things just happen to sixteen-year-old girls. Making her YA debut, Cherokee writer Andrea L. Rogers takes her place as one of the most striking voices of the horror renaissance. Horror fans will get their thrills in this collection—from werewolves to vampires to zombies, all the time-worn horror baddies are there. But so are predators of a distinctly American variety—the horrors of empire, of intimate partner violence, of dispossession. And so too the monsters of Rogers' imagination, that draw upon long-told Cherokee stories—of Deer Woman, fantastical sea creatures, and more. Following one extended Cherokee family across the centuries, from the tribe's homelands in Georgia to World War I, the Vietnam War, our own present, and well into the future, each story delivers a slice of a particular time period that will leave readers longing for more. Man Made Monsters is a masterful, heartfelt, terrifying collection ready to be devoured—but just don't blame us if you start hearing things that go bump in the night.
