Agata's Machine and Waxy are short stories by the Canadian writer Camilla Grudova (tumblr), whose debut collection The Doll's Alphabet has been likened to David Lynch, Margaret Atwood and Angela Carter.

I should have mentioned: 'Waxy' is a disturbing tale with, towards its end, a description of sexual violence which may be upsetting for some readers.

There's two rapes in Waxy. The last one the more violent, but worth noting if you have triggers.

OMG, I just got the book! I'm only 1.5 stories in, but it is scrumptious.

I've read that she is compared to Thomas Ligotti, but I am going to lean more on the David Lynch comparison.

Waxy was awfully grim.
