A dark, sad, unsettling and highly original book. You will be gripped from page one and drawn in to the troubled and increasingly fragile world of Stevie as year by year she finds herself more and more alienated from the world. A great debut novel, and there luckily there are move in the pipe-line.

Synopsis

Slights by Kaaron Warren

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.

Reviews

“I’ve never seen anyone capture sordid human nature so clearly. I was completely drawn in, totally immersed. I felt ill much of the time.” – Russell Kirkpatrick, on Slights

“Kaaron Warren is a fresh, amazingly talented voice out of Australia. You *must* read her work.” - Ellen Datlow

“Hugely and genuinely disturbing” - SciFi Now

“Simply gut-wrenching” - 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
