Coming in August from Tachyon Publications is Lauren Beukes’ upcoming collection Slipping. Here’s the cover and synopsis.
In her edgy, satiric debut collection, award-winning South African journalist and author 1616962402 Beukes (The Shining Girls, Moxyland) never holds back. Nothing is simple and everything is perilous when humans are involved: greed, corruption, struggle, and even love (of a sort).
A permanent corporate branding gives a young woman enhanced physical abilities and a nearly-constant high
Recruits lifted out of poverty find a far worse fate collecting biohazardous plants on an inhospitable world
The only adult survivor of the apocalypse decides he will be the savior of teenagers; the teenagers are not amused.
