ALICE has arrived!

ALICE is out in the wild, and it’s been a great release week so far! ALICE is one of Amazon’s Best Books of the Month in Science Fiction and Fantasy. It also is one of io9’s Science Fiction and Fantasy Books You Absolutely Must Read in August.  Kirkus Reviews placed it on their Must-Read Speculative Fiction Books for August, AND RT Book Reviews gave it 4 1/2 stars and named it an August Top Pick!

New In Books named it one of The 4 Best Alice in Wonderland Inspired Books.

If you want to read more about the genesis of this story, I wrote a guest essay for Amazon’s Omnivoracious Book Blog here. Adrian Liang of Omnivoracious says, “It takes a brave writer to remake such an iconic character and give her a brand-new and very scary reality. Christina Henry pulls off this amazing feat with her dark, fantastical thriller.”

There are lots of amazing reviews coming in from around the blog-o-sphere, too.

Chelle at Literal Addiction calls it “A dark, dangerous, and delightfully gritty trip through the looking-glass.” See Chelle’s review here.

Amanda at Vampire Book Club says, “Stop what you’re doing and go one-click this title…Hands down one of the most imaginative and entertaining books I’ve read all year.” See Amanda’s review here.

Bianca at I Smell Sheep calls it “Part demented fairy tale, part social commentary, this book is a smart, well-crafted story with multiple layers.” You can read the rest of her review here.

New York Comic-Con Info!

I’ll be attending the New York Comic-Con on Friday October 14th. Details for the panel and book signing are below. Hope to see many of you there! When I’m not at the signing or the panel I will probably be wandering around the con so you may bump into me even if you miss one of my “official” appearances.

I will be personalizing books from about 3pm to 3:30pm. If you miss me there you can still stop by the booth and pick up a signed copy of BLACK WINGS.

Panel Appearance


Friday, October 14

Room #:1A15

8:45PM – 9:45PM

In this, the tenth anniversary year of Neil Gaiman’s AMERICAN GODS, the ultimate urban fantasy road trip, we’ve seen a rash of infernal plagues infect some of America’s greatest cities. Witchcraft and demonic activity infect Kim Harrison’s Cincinnati, while Patricia Briggs’ novels wreak havoc on the shapeshifter, vampire and demonic tribes of the Tri Cities region of Washington State.  Anton Strout and Edward Lazellari see New York as the ultimate urban fantasy battleground. Rachel Caine has created an apocalyptic outpost in the Lone Star State vampire-controlled city of Morganville and terror has taken a bite out of Christina Henry’s Chicagoland. These authors will argue that there truly is a continental divide between the forces of East and West; North and South; Good and Evil.  Grab a bag of Cheetos, a six pack of Red Bull, and some holy water and join us as we explore the road to perdition….


MODERATOR: Diana Gill, executive editor at Harper Collins
