  1. Well, this one has leapt into the lead – it sounds delightfully strange but with a solid theme running through it. It’s interesting how often New Zealand and Australia turn up in speculative fiction as the last refuge after disaster – On the Beach, The Chrysalids, and so on. I’ll wait to see what the other shortlisted books sound like, but they’ve now got a target to beat!


    1. That’s a good way to put it, FictionFan. It is strange, so it’s best to let go of your disbelief and some expectations. Alice is a really interesting character; she has sociopathic tendencies, but at the same time, she’s human enough that I think a person can relate to her – especially to some of the comments she has about the world and the people in it. You’re right, too, that there are a lot of speculative fiction novels out of Australia and New Zealand; I hadn’t thought of that, but it’s quite true. Hmm…. ‘food for thought’ for which thanks. If you do read She’s a killer, I hope you’ll enjoy it!
