The Diviners by Libba Bray (Little, Brown) The Most Thrilling Science Fiction and Fantasy Books Coming in September!
We heard people buzzing about this book at Worldcon — it’s set in the 1920s, where Evie O’Neill comes to New York to live with her crazy uncle and tend the Museum of the Creepy Crawlies. There’s a rash of occult murders committed by a scary serial killer, a bizarre cult, and some intense stuff — good thing Evie has supernatural powers of her own. Plus we meet Memphis Campbell, a runner for the King of Harlem, and his white girlfriend Theta. Tons of stories intersect against the backdrop of Prohibition and the Jazz Age, for a flapper-tinged version of Buffy.
