Format: Paperback


In her debut collection, Bram Stoker Award-winner Jess Landry blurs the line between genres, magnifying the darkness in the spaces in between, and confronting those relationships that are nearest and dearest to us in the most horrific ways.

A mother and her daughter escape Nazi Germany, boarding the Hindenburg under the promise of a new life. An abused musical protégé discovers that her rage fuels much more than her cello-playing abilities. A hardened police officer finds something unexpected in the rising flood waters of her evacuated hometown. A woman ventures out onto the sea, in hopes of finding a mysterious mist where the dead roam freely. A strange tar infests the home of a young girl, swallowing everything in its wake, including her mother. Two broken women form a tragic bond while searching for a missing person in the dead of winter.

Mothers. Daughters. Sisters. Friends. No one is safe.

"I've been following Jess Landry's work since she first came onto the scene, and she's one of those impossibly gifted writers who started at the top and then just kept getting better. I can't imagine anyone reading The Night Belongs to Us and not believing she's one of the best new writers to emerge in the last few years."—Lisa Morton, six-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award®

Tension-filled and taut from the first sentence, The Night Belongs to Us is a horrifying, twisted take on motherhood, love, need, and desire."—Kaaron Warren  

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "
Some writers of weird fiction unearth the horrors buried within mundane experiences that most readers can recognize. Jess Landry's special talent is to flip this process inside out, portraying extraordinary adventures and then locating the emotional underpinnings of a situation that is both monstrous and all too human. In a short period of time, Landry has become one of the necessary and inimitable writers of the new horror generation. This collection is just the beginning of a very promising career."—S.P. Miskowski

"This got right under my skin. In a good way. The first story, that ending...very, very clever. I really enjoyed this and I'm very surprised it hasn't got hundreds of great rates because the whole book deserves that. Excellent stories, all told with pain and passion.
This book was recommended to me when I asked for short story collections to read, really glad I got this one."—Sarah Huntington
