Murmur by Natasha Sinclair
This short story collection pays homage to favourite speculative horror tropes with music inspiration, interwoven with themes of humanity and struggles with morality. This playful mix-tape of horror includes highly sexualised bloodlust on the goth club scene, a grim-dark creature feature, tales of loss of control, revenge, metamorphosis and punk teens stumbling into trouble in the woods.
I’d read a handful of Natasha’s shorts in various anthologies and always loved them, so when I saw she had put a collection of her own tales together it was a no brainier! Murmur has a wide variety of stories, from creature features to strange possessions, so there is sure to be a flavour to your liking. Without wanting to spoil anything, my personal favourite involved a dead relative that wasn’t quite ready to move on. Five stars!!
