Forthcoming: A New Novel by Andrez Bergen

Posted by Dale Townshend on May 10, 2014 in News tagged with

Depth Charging Ice Plant Gothic is the forthcoming novel by Andrez Bergen, author of Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat and Who is Killing the great Capes of Heropa?

‘She’s a disturbed, quiet girl, but Mina wants to do some good out there. It’s just that the world gets in the way. This is Australia in the 1980s, a haven for goths and loners, where a coming-of-age story can only veer into a murder mystery.’

This is a coming-of-age tale that fuses together urban fantasy, the paranormal, and fringe elements of sci-fi, dystopia, horror, the surreal, magical realism, and detective noir.

“Andrez Bergen introduces us to his most remarkable character in a dark, gothic tale — truly fabulous storytelling, and to my mind the author’s best.”
Katy O’Dowd, In Glorious Technicolor

“Vivid imagery delivered in a lucid, dreamlike narrative. This is an enthralling tale of survival, endurance and growing up that sinks its claws deep.”
OzNoir
