My latest novel, I Am Providence, is shipping a bit early from amazon.com and will be in better bookstores everywhere next month.
It’s a mystery novel of sorts, and set at a convention for fans of H. P. Lovecraft. It’s getting some good reviews so far, including this starred review from Booklist, which reads, in part:
This smart, fun novel is filled with hilarious satire. The story takes an honest look at Lovecraft’s troubling legacy of racism and sexism and how it comes into play during this current revival in his popularity, but you can also feel Mamatas’ true affection for the author and the larger community of misfit horror authors. A great choice for readers who enjoyed Matt Ruff’s Lovecraft Country (2016); those who liked the dark humor, mystery, and speculative elements in Ben H. Winters’ The Last Policeman trilogy; and anyone who has ever been part of a fandom.
It’s been written up in a few other places as well, and more reviews and some interviews are on the way. Check it out!
