“About An Other Place:
Get ready to enter the dark, disturbing waters of a dystopian sci-fi world in this widely-praised, mind-bending trip to An Other Place… where time and space are fluid… where the moon changes colour and savage beasts run wild… where teeth are used as currency and love-making is a perilous proposition… where cannibalism occasionally comes into fashion and the dead are swiftly forgotten… where strange sandmen offer sanctuary in times of danger and a mysterious Alchemist rules over all.
When Newman Riplan’s flight into the unknown turns into a nightmarish slide between worlds, he must explore an unnamed city where unpredictable terrors are the norm. By the end of his first day adrift, his life has spun completely out of his control, but the most mind-twisting and soul-crushing revelations are only beginning. As he desperately searches for meaning and a way out, he starts to realise that perhaps only madness can provide him with the answers, while surrender might offer him his only true hope of escape…
“This is, by far, the best book of 2016, possibly the best book of this decade… the bastard love child of Kafka and Rod Serling, throwing in a dash of Ray Bradbury for good measure. 5/5 — brilliant. Just brilliant.” Kelly Smith Reviews.
“An Other Place sees an imaginative writer at the top of his craft.It brings to mind The Twilight Zone, yet even Rod Serling himself would have struggled to come up with an alternate world so completely off-the-wall and yet oddly meaningful as Dash has here. 9/10 stars.” Starburst.
“Darren Dash has opened a new artery of terror… unlike any book I have ever read… hints of The Twilight Zone, Pines, and Station Eleven.” The Literary Connoisseur.
“Its luckless hero moves from ghastly scenarios to even ghastlier scenarios with such horrid reliability that his story reads like extreme black comedy. 4/5 stars.” SFX.
“Lewis Carroll, L. Frank Baum, and Brett Easton Ellis may have written some weird stuff, but An Other Place tops all of it, both in terms of re-readability and overall scope.” Dread Central.

Darren Dash is better known as Darren Shan, under which name he has sold over 25 million books worldwide, mainly in the YA market. While Darren is still in love with the world of YA and as active on that front as ever, he is now also exploring other worlds with his adult works, as Darren Dash. He has regularly made bestsellers charts in the USA (New York Times Top 10 on numerous occasions), the UK, Ireland, Hungary, Dubai, Japan, Taiwan and elsewhere.
Darren’s real name is Darren O’Shaughnessy. He was born in 1972, in London, but is Irish (despite the strong Cockney accent that he has never lost) and has spent most of his life in Limerick in Ireland, where he now lives with his wife and children.
Darren went to school in Limerick, then studied Sociology and English at Roehampton University in London. He worked for a cable television company in Limerick for a couple of years, before setting up as a full-time writer at the age of 23. He has been an incredibly prolific author, publishing 51 books in just over 20 years.
A big film buff, with a collection of nearly five thousand movies on DVD, Darren also reads lots of books and comics, and likes to study and collect original artwork, especially comic art, modern art, and sculptures. Other interests include long walks, going to soccer matches (he’s a Tottenham Hotspur and Ireland fan), listening to pop and rock music, theatre, worldwide travel, sampling the delights of both gourmet cuisine and finger-licking junk food, and dreaming up new ways to disturb and entertain his readers!
