Vermilion - Molly Tanzer

fandom: Vermilion - Molly Tanzer

what it is: a Weird West horror novel that puts queer poc front and center. In alt-1870's San Francisco, Half-Chinese, half-English Lou Merriwether is a psychopomp-- a specialist in laying the unquiet dead, from unhappy ghosts to full-on zombies. She's good at her job, and it keeps her from thinking too much about her father's death and her rocky relationship with her estranged mother. Until she reluctantly takes on the task of investigating the mysterious disappearances of Chinese men who were lured to a mysterious Sanitorium in the Colorado rockies with the promise of work and haven't been heard from since...

why it's awesome: do you like necromancy? Adventures in the mountains? Gunslinging, foul-mouthed, give-no-fucks heroines? Pulpy dime-novel plots and villainy? Historical fantasy about POC? Un-erased queer and genderqueer characters? If yes, you will probably enjoy this novel, and perhaps you will even want to request/offer fic for it!

Ooh, I really liked her collection A Pretty Mouth (and she had one of my favorite stories in the Laird Barron tribute anthology, too) and I'd completely forgotten that she wrote a novel. I'll have to check this out.

This sounds like everything I've ever wanted and so much more! Onto the Goodreads list it goes, hopefully I'll get to it before Yuletide ends.
