Description

The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion by Margaret Killjoy pits utopian anarchists against rogue demon deer in this dropkick-in-the-mouth punk fantasy that Alan Moore calls "scary and energetic."
Searching for clues about her best friend's mysterious suicide, Danielle ventures to the squatter, utopian town of Freedom, Iowa, and witnesses a protector spirit — in the form of a blood-red, three-antlered deer — begin to turn on its summoners. She and her new friends have to act fast if they're going to save the town — or get out alive.

"Important, thought-provoking...thrilling ride." —Lewis Shiner
"Always vivid."—Tobias Buckell
"As relatable as it is harrowing." —Leanna Renee Hieber

        Killjoy (A Country of Ghosts) packs this novella full of suspense, intrigue, and a surprising amount of heart. Danielle Cain is a runaway who finds a home in Freedom, Iowa, a town populated by a group of squatters. The residents’ guardian spirit, a three-horned deer named Uliksi, has seemingly gone rogue, killing members of their community—the very people who had summoned it. Danielle encounters danger at every turn, learning hard lessons about trust and safety. The mythology surrounding Uliksi is spare, and the writing speaks more to the successes and failures of anarchist politics in a highly charged, supernatural setting. Evocative of a desolate future, Killjoy’s writing is populated with characters that are as human as they are unique. The suspenseful narrative flows smoothly, with plenty of humorous asides from Danielle and her cohort. Perhaps most refreshing is the work’s concision. Nothing is superfluous. Killjoy allows the reader to glimpse a beautifully chaotic world, leaving just the right amount to the imagination.
