Speculative Fiction from Around the World

Kaaron Warren’s first novel, Slights, released

Apex Book of World SF contributor, Australian writer and Fiji resident, Kaaron Warren [blog][wikipedia] has recently signed a deal for three books with new HarperCollins imprint Angry Robot – and her first novel, Slights, is now out!

Stephanie is a killer. 

After an accident in which her mother dies, she has a near-death experience, and finds herself in a room full of people – everyone she’s ever pissed off. They clutch at her, scratch and tear at her. But she finds herself drawn back to this place, again and again, determined to unlock its secrets. Which means she has to die, again and again.

And she starts to wonder whether other people see the same room… when they die.

Slights is a deeply intense, disturbing read. Death is not the end, but this is not comforting, heartwarming or safe. The misery memoir craze of the last few years has overshadowed horror fiction’s impact with (allegedly) real-life experiences. Now it’s time for horror and fantasy fiction to fight back.
