Praise for Lucky Girl, How I Became a Horror Writer: A Krampus Story

“A sharp, lonely horror story about finding friends and terror in the unlikeliest places. M. Rickert weaves a Christmas horror story full of dread you can savor all year long. I loved it!”—Christopher Golden

A smart, page-turning twist on Straub's Ghost Story, where the monsters don't come back; they never went away."—Sarah Langan

“An effortless blend of supernatural and real-world horror that explores monstrousness in its many forms. The perfect sinister tale for a cold winter's night."—A.C. Wise

[A] delicious matryoshka doll of a novella. The heartache of family, the eternal longing for friendship, a haunting by events beyond our control, and at the center, the perfect Krampus tale, filled with surprise and terror.”—Alma Katsu

“M. Rickert creates a fabulous paean to the horror story, brilliantly combining such dark fictional tropes as the murder mystery, ghost stories told at Christmastime, folk horror, and the Gothic tradition into one elaborate and creepy metafictional meal.”—Steve Rasnic Tem

Praise for The Memory Garden:

“A potent brew of guilty secrets and tragic histories, but also of enduring friendship and love. [...] A totally charming, totally engaging story told by Rickert, a magus of the first order. Magic in every line.”—Karen Joy Fowler

“[An] atmospheric, eerie, and utterly beautiful debut.”—Joshilyn Jackson

Mary Rickert's debut novel is absolutely stunning. An emotionally complex story bridges the divide between the past and the present, between generations, and between age-old friendships compromised by a web of secrets and lies. Be prepared to fall under this novel's strange and sensuous spell.”—Christopher Barzak
