Thank you Book Riot for including Slipping in this list of seven new collections of short fiction for fans of SFF. Stoked to be in the incredible company of Ken Liu and absolute legend Terry Pratchett among others.

Okay, guys, so his one isn’t strictly short stories. Lauren Beukes, the South African author of The Shining Girls and the recently re-released Moxyland and Zoo City, includes non-fiction with fiction in this collection. (Her nonfiction has been widely published, as has her fiction.) The stories in Slipping include dystopian science fiction, talking cats, fighter pilots saving Tokyo, and killer art installations. If you’re a fan of Beukes’s dystopian visions of Johannesburg or her wicked sense of humor this book’s for you.
Thanks to my publishers @tachyonpub for this great photo featuring Slipping among some of their other killer titles.
