Zeroes Trilogy
X-Men meets Marissa Meyer’s Renegades when New York Times bestselling author of the Uglies series Scott Westerfeld teams up with award-winning authors Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti in this explosive trilogy about six teens with unique abilities. Don’t call them heroes. But these six Californian teens have powers that set them apart. Take Ethan, a.k.a. Scam. He’s got a voice inside him that’ll say whatever you want to hear, whether it’s true or not. Which is handy, except when it isn’t—like when the voice starts gabbing in the middle of a bank robbery. The only people who can help are the other Zeroes, who aren’t exactly best friends these days. Enter Nate, a.k.a. Bellwether, the group’s “glorious leader.” After Scam’s SOS, he pulls the scattered Zeroes back together. But when the recue blows up in their faces, the Zeroes find themselves propelled into whirlwind encounters with ever more dangerous criminals. At the heart of the chaos they find Kelsie, who can take a crowd in the palm of her hand and tame it or let it loose as she pleases. Filled with action and drama, the Zeroes trilogy unites three powerhouse authors for a thrilling high-stakes series.

X-Men meets Marissa Meyer’s Renegades when New York Times bestselling author of the Uglies series Scott Westerfeld teams up with award-winning authors Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti in the second book of an explosive new trilogy about six teens with unique abilities. They thought they’d already faced their toughest fight. But there’s no relaxing for the reunited Zeroes. These six teens with unique abilities have taken on bank robbers, drug dealers, and mobsters. Now they’re trying to lay low so they can get their new illegal nightclub off the ground. But the quiet doesn’t last long when two strangers come to town, bringing with them a whole different kind of crowd-based chaos. And hot on their tails is a crowd-power even more dangerous and sinister. Up against these new enemies, every Zero is under threat.

A Book of Endings

release date: Jan 01, 2009
A Book of Endings
Twenty-one short stories. "Deborah Biancotti's superb collection of short stories reminds me of the engaging work of Robert Aickman. She is a damned fine storyteller and her sheer originality, zest, energy and style fill the dark skyline of the modern world with luminous flares of mysterious force." - Graham Joyce. "There's wonder to the world, and a dark magic. And Deborah Biancotti wants to show it to you. Not just a series of short stories but an encyclopaedia of the uncanny, and a haunting reflection of how close the everyday is to madness. This is astonishing stuff - clever, humane, and more than a little profound." - Robert Shearman. "A Book Of Endings, the long-awaited collection of stories by Deborah Biancotti, one of Australia's best writers of short weird fiction (and I do mean weird) from Twelfth Planet Press, is a very tight and beautifully presented book." - Tansy Rayner Roberts, Not if You Were the Last Short Story on Earth

Bad Power

Bad Power
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.
