"Like walking from a dream into a mythical land both familiar and delightfully strange. A tale of tolerance and survival, in a fascinating and beautifully realised world."
-Trudi Canavan, author of the Black Magician Trilogy
“Kaaron Warren is a fresh, amazingly talented voice out of Australia. You *must* read her work.”
- Ellen Datlow
Praise for “Slights”:
“With outstanding control, Warren manipulates Stevie’s voice to create a portrait of horror that in no way reads like a first novel.”
- Publishers Weekly (Starred) Pick of the Week
“Hugely and genuinely disturbing”
- SciFi Now, reviewing Slights
- Jon Courtenay Grimwood, SFX
“Powerful stuff. So powerful, in fact, that my throat was hurting with my attempts to keep my emotions under control. I was completely drawn in, totally immersed. I felt ill much of the time.”
- Russell Kirkpatrick, bestselling author of “Across the Face of the World”
