Bad Power

(The fourth book in the Twelve Planets series)
A Novella by

Hate superheroes?
Yeah. They probably hate you, too.

‘There are two kinds of people with lawyers on tap, Mr Grey. The powerful and the corrupt.’
‘Thank you.’
‘For implying you’re powerful?’
‘For imagining those are two different groups.’

From Crawford Award nominee Deborah Biancotti comes this sinister short story suite, a pocketbook police procedural, set in a world where the victories are
only relative, and the defeats are absolute. Bad Power celebrates the worst kind of powers both supernatural and otherwise, in the interlinked tales of five people - and how far they’ll go.

If you like Haven and Heroes, you’ll love Bad Power.

‘These appetisingly wicked stories give you the perfect taste of Biancotti’s talents.’ - Ann VanderMeer

Gwyneth Jones on the Twelve Planets series:
‘These Australians give me hope for the future of female, and even feminist, writers in sf.’

The Twelve Planets are twelve boutique collections by some of Australia’s finest short story writers. Varied across genre and style, each collection offers four short stories and a unique glimpse into worlds fashioned by some of our favourite storytellers. Each author has taken the brief of 4 stories and up to 40 000 words in their own direction. Some are quartet suites of linked stories. Others are tasters of the range and style of the writer. Each release is a standalone and brings something unexpected.
