Admit it, you’ve dabbled in fanfiction once or twice. You know a smartly worded google search could turn up your middle school musings on what Ron and Hermione were doing behind the Quidditch shed or what Gandalf’s side projects were.
Slasher Girls and Monster Boys is like professional fanfiction all grown up. Forget the old xanga posts, this looks like a solid collection of work from some of the top YA writers out there. The stories are largely inspired by classic horror stories. Anthology curator April Tucholke’s story “Canary” springs from Stephen King’s Carrie, while Lois Duncan’s I Know What You Did Last Summer.
Slasher Girls and Monster Boys hits shelves this summer. Contributors include: Marie Lu (the Legend series), Carrie Ryan (The Forest of Hands and Teeth series), Kendare Blake, Cat Winters, Stefan Bachmann, Leigh Bardugo, A. G. Howard, Jay Kristoff, Jonathan Maberry, Megan Shepherd, Nova Ren Suma, McCormick Templeman, Danielle Page, and others.
Keep an eye out for the book in August. Until then, check out this exclusive cover reveal.
