Doorways for the Dispossessed
Follow murderous trails into the bloody foothills of Kathmandu; destroy yourself with obsessive sexual jealousies; disappear into the drug-hazed dust of the Baluchistan desert; and share health-conscious recipes with a gourmet cannibal. Read Paul Haines's dark, hard-edged fantasies about real people dealing with strong emotions in impossible situations and experience the paranoia, fear and lust that lurks in the shadowy recesses of the human soul.
The Last Days of Kali Yuga
These are the last days ... Travel the blood-stained trails of Kathmandu. Explore doorways to other worlds. Fight for humanity's darkening soul. ... when the powers of the Gods wane and evil walks the Earth. The Last Days of Kali Yuga is urban fantasy at its darkest. You won't find traditional vampires or werewolves in Paul Haines's stories. Instead, you will stare deep into the heart of the cruelest monster of all: man. Paul Haines is one of Australia's and New Zealand's leading dark fiction authors. He pioneered the 'backpacker horror' sub-genre with stories of Westerners confronted by dark powers and corrupted souls in the developing world. His novellas "The Last Days of Kali Yuga", "Doorways for the Dispossessed", and "Wives" - all of which appear in this book - have won Australia's and New Zealand's highest honours for speculative fiction. The Last Days of Kali Yuga is the definitive collection of Paul Haines's best work.
Slice of Life
Paul Haines sliced through the Australian writing scene with his twisted and murderous black humour in 2002. He has since won many awards and praise for his dark and surreal stories. Paul places himself in stories that make you think twice about his sanity and good taste: ‘Explicit, violent, misogynistic and nasty...stories are heavily cemented in my real life, and I love blurring them into the unreal’. Morrigan Books is very proud to republish Paul Haines' collection Slice of Life, as part of its new e-book series. Paul has already been published by Morrigan Books in the anthology Scenes from the Second Storey, with his short story I've Seen the Man, and has garnered success with his writing, several of his short stories winning awards throughout the genre community.
