Catherynne M. Valente’s new collection of connected novellas, The Refrigerator Monologues, with illustrations by Annie Wu, is releasing on June 6! Join the Hell Hath Club, a group of “fridged” (killed off to further the storylines of male superheroes) superheroines, supervillainesses, and superhero girlfriends. Six of them share their stories of their deaths, their lives, and their relationships with the male superheroes for whom they were killed.
