Book Review, Monstrous May

#MonstrousMay 2023: The Tundra

Book Spotlight

So, I’m not going to try and write something myself for this prompt, but I am going to highlight other books by indigenous authors set in this environment! I’ve got a thing for threes, so I’m going to highlight three books here.

For Younger Readers

Tales from the Tundra: A Collection of Inuit Stories by Ibi Kaslik – review here.

For Older Readers

Unikkaaqtuat: An Introduction to Inuit Myths and LegendsEnglish version

Taaqtumi: An Anthology of Arctic Horror Stories – get it here. This one was a Romancing the Gothic Book Club read!

“Taaqtumi” is an Inuktitut word that means “in the dark”―and these spine-tingling horror stories by Northern writers show just how dangerous darkness can be. A family clinging to survival out on the tundra after a vicious zombie virus. A door that beckons, waiting to unleash the terror behind it. A post-apocalyptic community in the far North where things aren’t quite what they seem. With chilling tales from award-winning authors Richard Van Camp, Rachel and Sean Qitsualik-Tinsley, Aviaq Johnston, and others, this collection will thrill and entertain even the most seasoned horror fan.
