On the set of a kitschy reality TV show, staged scares transform into unnerving reality in this spooky ghost story from multiple Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Sarah Pinsker.

"Don't talk to day about what we do at night."

When aimless twenty-something Mara lands a job as the night-shift production assistant on her cousin's ghost hunting/home makeover reality TV show Haunt Sweet Home, she quickly determines her new role will require a healthy attitude toward duplicity. But as she hides fog machines in the woods and improvises scares to spook new homeowners, a series of unnerving incidents on set and a creepy new coworker force Mara to confront whether the person she's truly been deceiving and hiding from all along--is herself.

Eerie and empathetic, Haunt Sweet Home is a multifaceted, supernatural exploration of finding your own way into adulthood, and into yourself.

Industry Reviews

Praise for Haunt Sweet Home

"Sarah Pinsker delivers yet again. Haunt Sweet Home cuts directly to the heart of a life that feels like it's haunted by the person living it. This one is fraught in all the right places."--Sarah Gailey, bestselling author of Just Like Home

"Kind but not gentle, Pinsker cuts to the core of the lives we craft and those that are imposed on us, and how it feels to be both in the circle by the fire, and forever lurking in the shadowy woods beyond."--Kathleen Jennings, author of Flyaway

"Pinsker pulls off the near-impossible feat of delivering a story that is simultaneously sweet and unnerving, reassuring and frightening."--A.C. Wise, author of The Ghost Sequences

"Threaded through with good humour and riddled with human frailty, Haunt Sweet Home is a creepy, disturbing book. I loved it."--Kaaron Warren, multi-award winning author of Bitters

"Pinsker's evocative prose turns an amusing reality-show backdrop into a haunting story of hiding from (and discovering) oneself."--Library Journal

Praise for We Are Satellites

"Taut and elegant, carefully introspected and thoughtfully explored."--The New York Times

"Compassionate, richly-textured."--Annalee Newitz

Praise for A Song for a New Day

"An all-too plausible version of the apocalypse, rendered in such compelling prose that you won't be able to put it down."--Kelly Link

"You'd better keep a copy of A Song for a New Day with you at all times, because this book will help you survive the future."--Charlie Jane Anders

"A compelling book about the importance of music--and any sort of art--in a world where it seems like the least essential thing."--Ann Leckie

"Like listening to a fine, well-rehearsed song unleashed live. It's a deeply human song of queer found family and the tension between independence and belonging, thoughtful and raw like the best live music."--Nicola Griffith
