SLIPPING by Lauren Beukes
Released: Nov. 29, 2016

"Utterly bizarre and equally addictive, these pieces demonstrate that Beukes has only tapped the surface of her prodigious and wide-ranging talent with her novels."
An art installation so tactile as to feel alive, a ghost that lurks alongside a promising architecture student, a girl gutted from the inside to make a premiere athlete: all stitched together into a punk tapestry of stories and other short pieces. Read full book review >
BROKEN MONSTERS by Lauren Beukes
Released: Sept. 16, 2014

"Beukes gave us a time traveling serial killer in The Shining Girls, and the monsters in her latest tale, whether they're real or imagined, will keep you up all night."
A genuinely unsettling—in all the best ways—blend of suspense and the supernatural makes this a serial-killer tale like you've never seen. Read full book review >
THE SHINING GIRLS by Lauren Beukes
Released: June 4, 2013

"Despite thrillingly beautiful sentences, Beukes' considerable imaginative powers seem wasted in this shallow, often ugly game of cat and mouse tarted up with supernatural elements that do not bear too much scrutiny."
Beukes carries her experimentation in science fiction (Moxyland, 2010) and fantasy (Zoo City, 2010) to very dark corners as she follows a time-traveling serial killer who preys on young Chicago women from the 1930s until the 1990s. Read full book review >
