Goddess of Filth

One hot summer night, best friends Lourdes, Fernanda, Ana, Perla, and Pauline hold a séance. It’s all fun and games at first, but their tipsy laughter turns to terror when the flames burn straight through their prayer candles. As Father Moreno’s obsession with Fernanda grows, Lourdes enlists the help of her “bruja Craft crew” and a professor, Dr. Camacho, to understand what is happening to her friend in this unholy tale of possession-gone-right. Contains mature themes.

Note: Castro delivers a gorgeously crafted horror story and a powerful coming-of-age tale that explores female sexuality, the bonds of friendship, and spiritual self-discovery. Fans of Mexican Gothic will love Goddess of Filth. – Kim Budnick

America’s Great-Power Opportunity

In this timely intervention, Ali Wyne offers the first detailed critique of great-power competition as a foreign policy framework, warning that it could render the United States defensive and reactive.

Note: Since 1945, America has exerted great power and influence across the world. But over the last two decades, China and Russia have increasingly challenged that influence. How should the United States respond? Ali Wyne argues that rather than seeing this as an insurmountable challenge, it is in fact an opportunity to revitalize the nation’s global power and stature. – Aaron Piccirillo
