The Crossroads at Midnight is an all-new, one-woman anthology by critically-acclaimed cartoonist Abby Howard, full of evocative, unnerving, slice-of-life horror. The five stories in this 352-page volume explore the consequences of what happens when one is desperate enough to seek solace in the unnatural.

Notes on This Title
This is an anthology title. Only one of the five stories (“The Girl in the Fields”) has overtly queer content; however, there are other characters that may be implied to be queer, such as a supporting character in the story “Mattress, Used” whose laptop has a sticker reading “Trans Binch”, and the focal character in the story “Kindred Spirits”, who may be implied to be a woman who is attracted to women.
This title contains graphic depictions of gore and violence, as well as a queer character being threatened with conversion therapy.
Starred Review: “Each story comes to life as Howard draws out thrilling climaxes with agonizingly long sequences that frequently linger on grotesque visuals.” (Source: Publishers Weekly)
“Unsettling in the best way.” (Source: Kirkus Reviews)
