Publisher's Summary

Cassandra Khaw's Nothing but Blackened Teeth is a gorgeously creepy haunted house tale, steeped in Japanese folklore and full of devastating twists.

A Heian-era mansion stands abandoned, its foundations resting on the bones of a bride and its walls packed with the remains of the girls sacrificed to keep her company. 

It’s the perfect venue for a group of thrill-seeking friends, brought back together to celebrate a wedding. 

A night of food, drinks, and games quickly spirals into a nightmare as secrets get dragged out and relationships are tested. 

But the house has secrets too. Lurking in the shadows is the ghost bride with a black smile and a hungry heart. 

And she gets lonely down there in the dirt. 

Effortlessly taking the classic haunted house story and turning it on its head, Nothing but Blackened Teeth is a sharp and devastating exploration of grief, the parasitic nature of relationships, and the consequences of our actions.

Critic Reviews

“Brutally delicious! Khaw is a master of teasing your senses, and then terrorizing them!” (N.K. Jemisin, New York Times bestselling author of The Fifth Season)

“Imagine chucking House on Haunted Hill, Japanese folklore, Clive Barker, and Kathy Acker into a literary blender. Nothing but Blackened Teeth reads like the ghost-punk noir you never knew you needed. It's sharp, playful, and nasty as hell.” (Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Survivor Song

“Khaw’s tale seems to come at you straight, setting up your story expectations, but then twists the knife at the last minute, leaving you reeling, but wanting more.” (Richard Kadrey, New York Times best-selling author of the Sandman Slim series)

“Khaw's got a sterling premise, enduring lore, and the fresh talent to voice it.” (Josh Malerman, New York Times best-selling author of Bird Box)
