Cassandra Khaw



Cassandra Khaw is the business developer for a micropublisher Ysbryd Games, which specializes in narrative-driven video games. When not otherwise sending press releases, she is reading them. The Malaysian transplant contributes regularly to technology outlet Ars Technica UK. Somewhere between all that, Cassandra spends abnormal amounts of time writing about living architecture, Southeast Asian mythology, and fantastical things like older female characters with agency.

This World is Not Yours (2024)
Kemi Ashing-Giwa
"A Herculean work of ambition...A fantastic story of extraterrestrial threats and survival."
thumb
The Briar Book of the Dead (2024)
A G Slatter
"Slatter writes witches like none other, and her newest is a darkling feast, jewelled and blood-stained, rich with secrets and seething with unbearable power."
thumb
Exordia (2024)
Seth Dickinson
"Beautiful, introspective, and unbelievably tense. It feels like being in a hospital waiting room in the best and worse sense, the suspended moment right before you find out what's going on."
