Publisher Quirk Books endeared itself to horror fans with mash-up releases like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters as well as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and its sequels. Wonder what’s ahead for this coming spring/summer? Read on for the details of two upcoming Quirk novels that should be on your radar.

Arriving May 17th is My Best Friend’s Exorcism from Grady Hendrix, whose first novel, Horrorstör, was picked up for a pilot by Fox.

Synopsis:
Abby and Gretchen have been best friends since fifth grade, when they bonded over a shared love of E.T., roller-skating parties, and scratch-and-sniff stickers. But when they arrive at high school, things change. Gretchen begins to act… different. And as the strange coincidences and bizarre behavior start to pile up, Abby realizes there’s only one possible explanation: Gretchen, her favorite person in the world, has a demon living inside her. And Abby is not about to let anyone or anything come between her and her best friend. With help from some unlikely allies, Abby embarks on a quest to save Gretchen. But is their friendship powerful enough to beat the devil?

Next, hitting bookstores and online outlets June 7th, is Paul Krueger’s Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge, in which demons are real, booze is magic, and a well-crafted cocktail is Chicago’s only hope.

Synopsis:
College grad Bailey Chen has all of the usual new-adult demons: no cash, no job offers, and a rocky relationship with Zane, the only friend still around when she moves back home. But her demons become a lot more literal when Zane introduces Bailey to his cadre of monster-fighting bartenders. It turns out supernatural creatures are stalking the streets of Chicago, and they can be hunted only with the help of magically mixed cocktails: vodka grants super-strength, whiskey offers the power of telekinesis, and tequila lets its drinker fire blasts of elemental energy. But will these supernatural powers be enough for Bailey and a ragtag band of mixologists to halt a mysterious rash of gruesome deaths? Includes 13 cocktail recipes from an ancient book of cocktail lore.
