Brother by Ania Ahlborn - Limited Edition
Published: December 2019.
Brother is the terrifying tale of a family’s disturbing traditions, and of one brother’s determination to break free from all he has ever known. In a crooked farmhouse off the beaten path and miles away from civilization live the Morrows. A band of eccentric recluses, the family keeps to themselves so as not to be questioned by local police when girls go missing from the side of the highway. But nineteen-year-old Michael Morrow is different. He derives no pleasure in the screams that echo through the trees.
Michael pines for a life of normalcy and to see a world beyond that of West Virginia. In the nearby town of Dahlia, Michael meets Alice, a pretty girl working at a record shop. He is immediately smitten, but his family is all too eager to remind him of the monster he is.
Hailed by critics as “impossible to put down,” Ahlborn delivers all the guilt, guts, and gore of family drama as Michael fights to attain the life he longs for.

Beautiful and up to Suntup high standards!
One of the best horror novels ever. Classic. Paul's treatment of it is still one of his finest!!!
If you’ve read this book, you’ll appreciate how perfect Suntup’s design choices were. The quality is fantastic, of course, but it’s the aesthetics that make this one really special.
If you haven’t read it yet, you’re also in for an unforgettable story!
NO SPOILERS here. I read this book cold. I only knew the book title, and that Ania Ahlborn wrote it. I read the actual paperback before I received the gorgeous Suntup Press limited edition.(which was still in production). Brilliantly disturbing horror fiction. The limited is still available. My personal thought is the only reason, the limited hasn't sold out yet is the global COVID19 pandemic. If you have the cash to spare this book is a bargain at Suntups price. ($275?). If you don't have the cash fur the HC, may I reccomend the paperback also. notas limited and collectible. But, in my opinion I would rate it 95+/100.
Individual numbers don't really matter (my opinion) when they reach at least 90/100. If a book rates that high (for me anyway), you are getting a damn fine read.
I will be purchasing more books written by Ania Alhorn. highly reccomended. also if there is someone interested in obtaining the Brother paperback.I could probaby sell and ship it (media mail included) for my purchase price, not sure what that was at the moment $20 perhaps. payment as a transfer to my paypal acct. if interested shoot me an e-mail. it's probably avaiable in digital format as well somewhere.Once you read it, you will realized, that it worth searching for.
Suntup has released a truly beautiful edition. It begins with a finely textured cover and incredible artist rendered illustrations. The feel of something darkly beautiful begins here. The tale that "Brother" tells is deeply felt and belongs among the classic horror stories. A tale for these times; a tale of feeling of belonging and not belonging at the same time; a tale of horror and dysfunction. Holding this gorgeous volume in your hands will get you through to the end.
