About the Author
Sascha Stronach is a Maori author from the Kai Tahu iwi and Kati Huirapa Runaka Ki Puketeraki hapu. He is based in Wellington, New Zealand, and has also spent time in Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore, which have all inspired parts of the fictional worlds he creates. A former tech writer, he first broke out into speculative fiction by experimenting with the short form. The Dawnhounds, his debut novel, won the Sir Julius Vogel Award at Worldcon 78.
"A wonderful queer noir fever dream." --Tamsyn Muir, internationally bestselling author of Gideon the Ninth
"Fiercely queer. A strange and wondrous re-imagining of noir that takes its cues from biopunk and SE Asian mythos to create something wholly different. There's real imagination at work here--I loved it." --Rebecca Roanhorse, New York Times bestselling author of Trail of Lightning and Black Sun
"Worldbuilding at its peak. The Dawnhounds heaves with life, a tangible sense of cosmic power simmering from the waters around this port city and from the people trying to save it. Just don't call them heroes, aye." --Chloe Gong, New York Times bestselling author of These Violent Delights and Our Violent Ends
"The Dawnhounds roots in the mind like a night garden, vital and voracious. I can't get it out of my head." --Amal El-Mohtar, award-winning coauthor of This Is How You Lose the Time War
"The Dawnhounds packs hard-hitting, mind-bending weirdness into a story that's still touching and human. If you're looking for gritty queer spec fic that isn't unrelentingly grim, you've found it." --Casey Lucas, award-winning author of Into the Mire
"The tones of Stronach and Pratchett are enormously similar. . . .Delightful." --Octavia Cade, author of The Mythology of Salt and Other Stories
