Slipping is a collection of previously published short stories and essays by Beukes. Her worlds are always rich and interesting, and her quirkily populated, future South Africa is always a fascinating backdrop for her stories about how technology and social media warp humanity’s sense of self.

Slick and stylish, Beukes’ visions of the future both entertain and alarm in the way that great science fiction should. I really love most everything I’ve read from her, and Slipping is no exception. A great little collection.
