WASHINGTON STATE MAGAZINE staff reveal what they’ve been reading, watching, and listening to since the start of the COVID-19 crisis. Editor Larry Clark’s selections include Lisa Goldstein’s IVORY APPLES.

I enjoy a good novel about fiction becoming reality, and obsession. Goldstein’s words are gripping and, at times, terrifying.

In the REDDIT r/Horror thread What Horror novels and short stories do you consider truly terrifying, The-BoneRanger mentions Lauren Beukes’ SLIPPING: STORIES, ESSAYS, & OTHER WRITING.

If you’re looking for any techno-horror you should check out SLIPPING by Lauren Beukes. Not all of the stories are sci-fi based, but a good number are. I was particularly unsettled by the story of futuristic patchwork athletes who are engineered beyond the peak of human performance.
