For readers of The Vegetarian and Friday Black, The Anthill is an intoxicating literary ghost story about a young woman returning home to seek redemption.

Lina has come home to the country of her childhood. Sent away from Colombia to England after her mother's death twenty years before, she's searching for the one person who can tell her about their shared past. She's never forgotten Matty, her childhood friend and protector, who now runs The Anthill, a day care refuge for the street kids of Medellín. Lina begins volunteering there, but her reunion with Matty is not what she hoped for. Medellín is entering a new era, and Matty appears to have taken the city's attempts to redefine itself post-conflict to heart. He has no interest in discussing the past and his enigmatic behavior puts Lina on guard. And then, strange happenings start taking place at The Anthill: violent scratches appear on the inside of the supply closet door, kids make disturbing crayon drawings and insist they've seen a small boy with pointy teeth roaming around the yard. Could Lina have brought these disturbances with her? Is this a vision of the boy she once knew, or something more sinister? And what will her search for atonement cost Matty?

Far away, two men from conflicting nations attempt to forge a relationship while trying to forge an alliance.

Farther still, an elf boy sees the destruction of his peaceful home for nothing but a would-be weapon.

Finally, a small nation must call on the Dark for help when the Light betrays them.

Throughout the world of Perdinok, a range of people have their lives upended as unrest turns to civil war and turns to war on other nations. In the end, the sanctimonious empire unearths an ancient power that threatens all. Only a Demoness can put things right, but she holds her own agenda.

ABOUT RNWY

The year is 2399. Humans' “biological clocks” have been stopped for more than 250 years, freeing humanity from aging and death. AIs have rights, and can even acquire full citizenship.

It’s also fashion week. Antisocial fashion editor Pablo Starr — who runs Space Fashion Week, via RNWY — is bored and depressed, as usual. He has endless riches, and (like everyone in 2399) doesn't age, but he's been searching for his lost love for almost 100 years.

Meanwhile, supermodel-turned-reality star Samantha (of mean-spirited holo show Samantha!) is trying to make a name for herself as an inventor, but she's mocked by the media and her shallow co-workers.

Their lives are connected, and changed, when DOS, an antiquated robot, crashes the Chanel show looking for Samantha.

DOS has a wild story: his owner has been abducted by a Sention sim (a lifelike android made by Fashion Robotics), and Pablo will be next.
