Hollow Heart

EL used to be human. Now he’s a jumble of organs in a bio-suit. EL is also in tremendous pain and has been for a very long time. Hope arrives in the form of Mateo, a mechanic brought in to work on EL’s suit. Mateo sees EL in a way no one else ever has. And what’s more: Mateo offers EL an escape.

Hollow Heart reunites Tet creators Paul Allor and Paul Tucker for a queer monster love story about the choices we make between giving our loved ones what they want and giving them what we think they need.


"This book is like The Shape of Water, but with queer leads. A monster love story we can all fall in love with."

Wandering Nerd Girl

"Love, horror, and bio-suit sludge monsters."


"This is a story that immediately grapples your attention and there are lots of fascinating threads and themes, and I really cannot recommend this enough. This is one of the coolest starts to a sci-fi story I’ve read in a minute, and this should be a must add to your pull for a wide gamut of fans."

Black Nerd Problems

"That Paul & Paul are bringing us this unique look at a science fiction tale that doesn’t fit any mold that I know of is exceedingly well done."

Reading With a Flight Ring

"Paul Allor (Guardians of the Galaxy) beautifully navigates both authentic relationships and an engaging story."
