Product Details


“It reads like the best episode of Black Mirror that Charlie Brooker hasn’t yet made. It’s unsettling, bewildering, but ultimately uplifting: proof that horror can be an enriching genre when done right.”

Full Immersion is fiercely thought-provoking endeavour.”
– LoveReading

“Amor writes passionately and convincingly about Magpie’s pain. The result is a bleak but powerful portrait of survival at any cost.”
– Publishers Weekly

“The narrative that follows walks a line between futuristic thriller, with its full-body virtual reality and potential technical dangers, and a dark fairy tale… Overall, a powerful and challenging work.”
– Booklist

– Strange Horizons

“A brave, timely and important book.”
– Gareth L. Powell, author of Stars and Bones

“Gemma Amor has taken on a considerable challenge here… and she’s succeeded.”
– SFX Magazine

“Astonishing and totally unique, Gemma Amor writes so fearlessly that it feels as if she were baring her soul in Full Immersion. An intricately crafted and superbly rendered vision of horror-fantasy from one of the genre’s most brilliant and devastating voices.”
– Eric LaRocca, author of Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke

“A banger of a story… it is raw, full of emotion, and incredibly honest… This a novel that will stay with you. Recommended.”
SFF World

“A deep dive into the horrors of depression, Full Immersion takes readers on a harrowing journey into the character of Magpie, a woman grappling with a horrifying history she can barely remember, now lost within herself. There, a host of terrors play out in unexpected, gruesome ways. Told through duelling POVs, Ms. Amor’s writing is tense and sharp, reminiscent of Kealan Patrick Burke, Jeanette Winterson and Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Fans of both psychological and body horror will find much to enjoy here!”
D.K. Stone, author of Fall Of Night

“Powered by dread from the very beginning, Full Immersion is a full-throated scream in the heart. Gemma Amor wields an ever-tightening emotional vice, constantly questioning and challenging the malevolent unreality we accept as our lives. A harrowing inward odyssey.”
– Hailey Piper, author of Queen of Teeth

“Raw, personal, confrontational, and timely, Gemma Amor bares her soul in full for a book that will rock you to your core. Charting a metaphysical landscape of pain and real suffering, Full Immersion is nothing less than a klaxon call confirming one of the most daring and fearless voices in contemporary fiction.”
Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Kin and Sour Candy

“With Full Immersion, Gemma Amor offers you an incredible journey into the dangers and possibilities of the human mind. It’s shocking and unnerving and heartbreaking and, ultimately, hopeful in a way that makes you want to jump for joy. It will reawaken you to the possibilities – and depths – of our souls.”
Nick Kolakowski, author of Absolute Unit and Boise Longpig Hunting Club

“Gemma Amor’s raw, dreamlike novel, Full Immersion, crept under my skin in the most delicious way. A modern-day fairy tale where the princess must save herself, this book will unnerve you and break your heart. An important, timely story.”
– Meagan Jennett, author of You Know Her

“All of Gemma’s work is vivid and visceral, but Full Immersion will invade every space of your heart and mind. The hurt is terrifying as it jumps off the page to create haunting images of catastrophic proportions. If you are not a Gemma fan already then you will be after this one. I felt every word.”
– V. Castro, Bram Stoker Award nominated author of Goddess of Filth
“The body horror is visceral, and the virtual reality component will cause readers to constantly question what’s real. Readers of Amor’s latest are in for a creepy, unsettling narrative, with strong shades of Sarah Pinborough. Recommend to those who enjoy films like Inception and Memento.”
– Anita Siraki, Library Journal

“The bravest book you’ll read all year. Harrowing, yes, but necessarily so. As empowering as it is powerful. Not only does the book benefit a crucial cause, the stories are extraordinary, written by more than a dozen paramount voices in horror. Sometimes a book illuminates as it entertains; We Are Wolves is that rare find.”
– Josh Malerman,
New York Times best selling author of Bird Box and Malorie, on We Are Wolves

“It pulls no punches, asks for no quarter, and will leave you breathless. I loved it.”
– Brian Keene, best-selling author and World Horror Grandmaster Award-winner, on We Are Wolves

“Gemma delivers! She has the ability to make your heart race.”
– Scream Magazine, on Cruel Works of Nature
