- About the Author
Unconfined to a single theme, this new collection of twenty short stories by Halim offers five distinct worlds – the paranormal mysteries from ‘The occult world’, with its dark settings reveal supernatural existences in the characteristic Halim style. Fragmented Minds open doors to the tales of the horrors of some twisted human minds driven by madness. Without the theme of supernatural, these instances of the human rationality falling apart evoke fear of a different nature. The third set of horrors is a reflection of our vulnerability, with its tales of how the technology can be destructive at times. In five different sets, Scream to the Shadows touches upon the different forms of terrors that bring fears of their distinct natures.
Tunku Halim is a Malaysian novelist, short story, non-fiction writer and lawyer. His novel Vermillion Eye was a study text at the National University of Singapore. By delving into Malay myth, legends and folklore, his writing is regarded as ‘World Gothic’. His novel, Last Breath, is seen as taking a step away from the genre into ‘a mixture of character drama, satire, alternate history, and magic realism’.
