  • Got most of the books I plan on reading this year queued up and I got some MONSTERS in store, so I鈥檓 interested in some lighter stuff to fill in some gaps between those.

    Preferably looking for some horror/sci-fi collections, but open to some more general literary ones as well (I鈥檝e already read most of Tolstoy鈥檚 and James Joyce Dubliners fyi).

  • for sci-fi, and this is one that I've seen recommended here a few times, but anything by Ted Chiang

    • Harlan Ellison bundle (known for his infamous short ''I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream)

    • HP Lovecraft bundle

    • James Vandermeer Southern Reach series (you might have heard of the film Annihilation by Alex Garland)

    Those seem to fit your criteria since they all are sci-fi/horror and especially Lovecraft and Ellison are a must read in the world of fictional stories for their influence and popularity alone

    Philip K D*** and Asimov have a bunch of shorts for sci-fi. Can't go wrong there

    If you just want a horror novella try Joyce Carol Oates' Zombie. Absolutely chilling read that I got through in no time

    You mostly read fiction? I mostly don't well, some might see religious/esoteric books as fiction still but yeah

    Yeah, but I do read a lot of nonfiction as well. Books on politics, socioeconomics, psychology, history, autobiographical etc.

    I read Songs of a Dead Dreamer & Grimscribe by Thomas Ligotti last October. Some p good stuff in there that fits your horror vibe.
