Slights is Kaaron Warren's first book from Angry Robot (she has another two coming) and I can't wait to see them. Slights is to Australian Horror what The Shining was to American. I honestly believe that if anyone ever says to you that the Great Australian Horror novel hasn't been written then you can point to Slights, or bash them over the head with it. It's a masterpiece of voice, a bleak and haunting novel that gets it's hooks into you and yanks, all the while scratching its broken nails down the blackboard of your psyche.
Kaaron Warren has set the standard by which all future Australian horror novels will have to be judged*.
That is all.
*of course, feel free to disagree, but I'm glad I'm not writing horror.
