My debut collection of short stories, essays, and other writing, Slipping, is out in October in the USA from the good people of Tachyon Publications.
Here’s more info on the book and how to preorder it
A permanent corporate branding confers enhanced physical abilities and a nearly-constant high. A tough-as-nails Soweto Lolipunk mecha pilot rescues Tokyo from a marauding art installation. An architecture student finds himself haunted by a ghost girl who is less of a goth cliche than he suspected.
In this edgy and satiric debut collection, award-winning South African journalist and author Lauren Beukes never holds back. Whether exposing political injustices or writing to her five-year-old daughter about what real beauty is, Beukes is fiercely honest and strikingly astute. From Johannesburg to other worlds, this hard-hitting assemblage of fiction and nonfiction, showcases an author who tells the truths we need to hear.
