News: Paul Haines - Slice Of Life

via HorrorScope by Talie Helene on 9/1/09
Paul Haines... A man. A liver. A mind?

Meet the mind of Paul Haines. Slice of Life contains seventeen glittering stories, dripping with twenty first century paranoia and anxiety. The honesty of Paul's writing horrifies as he describes the private mind of men. Published here together for the first time are the Ditmar winning story; The Devil In Mr Pussy, the Aurealis Award shortlisted horror story; Doof Doof Doof; and the complete Slice of Life series of stories, including the previously unpublished Slice of Life—a Spot of Liver.

HAINES' SLICE OF LIFE - seventeen glistening stories from the decaying mind of the winner of the 2005 Ditmar for New Talent.

'Exuberant, profane, and totally whacked out'
Ellen Datlow

29, August, 2009 - Slice of Life launch at Conflux 09

Paul has released a short statement: "My new collection Slice of Life will be launched at Conflux this year. If my health permits, I hope to be there to help launch it."

Paul Haines was raised in the '70s, in the wrong part of Auckland, New Zealand. He now lives in Melbourne with his wife and daughter. Paul Haines sliced through the Australian writing scene with his twisted and murderous black humour in 2002. He has since won an Aurealis Award and three Ditmar awards for his dark and surreal stories. Lately he has been fighting cancer.
