  • About the Author
  • Velouria is a seminal collection of microfiction. Daren Shiau, better known as a novelist and a poet, experimented with flash fiction in between lengthier works in the mid-200os. The title story of the book is named after a track by Boston-based alternative rock band, the Pixies. Other stories in the volume were titled after the songs by artistes such as My Bloody Valentine and Thelonious Monk. This 2017 reprint contains a new story "Sedimentary", which received the top prize in The Straits Times' inaugural microfiction competition in 2007.

  • Daren Shiau is a writer, lawyer and environmentalist. He graduated from Raffles Institution in 1989 and went on to read Law in the National University of Singapore, eventually graduating on the Dean’s List in 1996. Having picked up literary writing in NUS, he won the NUS Literary Society writing competition in 1993/1994, and went on to win the 1998 Singapore Literature Prize Commendation Award for Heartland (Raffles), a Singaporean bildungsroman about alienation and belonging set in the vernacular, though highly ordered, landscape of public housing.
