The Southern Reach Trilogy
by Jeff VanderMeer

This trilogy is about the slow accumulation of creepy moments, so I can't reveal much. If you liked the low-budget classic film Monsters, read this book now. VanderMeer has taken a bunch of sci-fi tropes, stripped them down and put them back together with a Lovecraft-ian knack for uncanny images that suggest unspeakable horrors.

Once Upon an Alphabet
by Oliver Jeffers

I think we can all agree that Oliver Jeffers is King of the Kids. He surprises us again and again with innovative and engaging picture books for children of all ages. Clocking in at 112 pages and consisting of 26 poems - one for each letter of the alphabet - Once Upon an Alphabet is a truly extraordinary feat. The size and scope of Alphabet needs to be seen to be believed - oversized and chock-full of Jeffers' tardemark illustarations (along with a fetching fluoro jacket). I cannot recommend this book more highly.
