Sister, Maiden, Monster is a visceral story set in the aftermath of our planet’s disastrous transformation and told through the eyes of three women trying to survive the nightmare, from Bram Stoker Award-winning author Lucy A. Snyder.

Humanity has been irrevocably changed by a virus that radically alters its victims…yet life goes on.

Three women must band together to try to survive. Erin and Savannah are helping usher in the new world, while Mareva has been burdened with a very special task — one she’s too horrified to even acknowledge.

A beautifully written, cosmically horrifying, wholly unique story that examines the roots of our belief systems and completely defies all expectations.


LUCY A. SNYDER is the Shirley Jackson Award-nominated and five-time Bram Stoker Award-winning author of 15 books and over 100 published short stories. She lives in Ohio with a jungle of houseplants, a clowder of cats, and an insomnia of housemates.


Praise for Lucy A. Snyder

“(T)hose who love the poignant and bizarre – at which Snyder excels – won’t be disappointed.” —Publishers Weekly on Garden of Eldritch Delights

“Snyder, a master at crafting visceral stories that deeply probe Lovecraftian horror and dark fantasy, is back with a Halloween-themed collection … a solid suggestion for readers of her cosmic-horror peers such as John Langan and Caitlín R. Kiernan.” — Booklist on Halloween Season

“Lucy A. Snyder attacks the page with the raw, manic intensity of an early Sam Raimi. Snyder’s endlessly fertile, endlessly twisted imagination has never been so well-displayed.” —Seanan McGuire on Soft Apocalypses

“Gripping…. I couldn’t put it down!” —Sarah Langan on Spellbent
