Five of the best books to transport you to other worlds

Tade Thompson lives and works in the south of England.

He is the author of the Rosewater trilogy (winner of the Nommo Award and John W. Campbell finalist), The Murders of Molly Southbourne (nominated for the Shirley Jackson Award, the British Science Fiction Award, and the Nommo Award), and Making Wolf (winner of the Golden Tentacle Award).

At the Guardian, Thompson tagged five of the best books to transport you to other worlds, including:
Unreliable narration is at the heart of Catriona Ward’s Little Eve, a beautifully rendered folk horror tale that is deeply unsettling. This story of nebulous cults, murders and obfuscation in the Scottish Highlands is all realised in language that is effective and affecting. The delirious, dreamlike prose is underpinned by a tight control of material with the details of early 20th-century life layered in like a foundation – unobtrusive, yet grounding the tale.
