THE BURNING RIVER
In a radically changed Aotearoa New Zealand, Van’s life in the swamp is hazardous. Sheltered by Rau and Matewai, he mines plastic and trades to survive.
When a young visitor summons him to the fenced settlement on the hill, he is offered a new and frightening responsibility—a perilous inland journey that leads to a tense confrontation and the prospect of a rebuilt world.
Written with the assistance of the Creative New Zealand Todd Foundation New Writers Award, and an emerging writers residency from the Michael King Writers’ Centre.
Due out in October; pre-order now from Victoria University Press.
I Got His Blood on Me
A bloodied figure staggers into a new century, a cranky
ghost stops a Kāpiti train, a sealer meets death in Fiordland.
From a reimagined history to a future where holograms walk the streets, these stories explore the frontiers that face the adventurous—now and in the past.
