The Traveling Triple-C Incorporeal Circus by Alanna McFall

Cover Description: Author and title on a sandy-colored long road, with three pairs of legs and feet walking away from the viewer. Two legs glow as if ghosts: one with blue bumps and blood on her leg and one with peach sandals. In the center, dark-skinned legs are wearing worn striped socks and practical shoes.

Content warnings: This novel explores life and relationships through the lens of death in a lighthearted, though sometimes serious way. The main character dies at the beginning, in a vehicle collision, and the characters throughout include dead humans depicted in ghost form. These characters show the methods of their death including elements of gore. These bodies are depicted in a factual manner, not intended to evoke horror. Mild violence is depicted, though in ways that could be upsetting, including violence against an animal, gun violence, and police abuse. All violence is presented in a negative light. One main character is a transient Black woman who does not speak verbally, and she is subjected to casual ableism, racism, and classism during her journey.
