Rjurik’s innovative new collection, Dark Tides, will be released by Twelfth Planet Press in 2018/2019. It is filled with themes that Rjurik has been known for as well as several major essays. Interested in thought-provoking speculative fiction which investigates the themes of gender, politics and morality in dangerous worlds? Dark Tides is for you.
Twelfth Planet Press explain:
Dark Tides is an exciting genre-spanning collection featuring science fiction and fantasy, surrealism and magic realism. A man listens to his mysterious neighbour’s constant weeping; a future revolutionary faces terrible moral choices in the face of a surrounding enemy army; in the city of Caeli-Amur, a man visits the ghost-haunted ruins of the ancient forum; an immigrant searches for intimacy in a fascist Paris; a researcher joins an expedition to capture a Siren; a lost soul is hired to guard a corridor with six permanently closed doors — these and many more stories intrigue and sparkle, swing us from melancholy to triumph, and set our minds alight with ideas. Dark Tides is a collection that unveils the contradictions of life and turn them on an angle so that we might see them — and ourselves — more clearly.
