AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'These are the last days ...

'Travel the blood-stained trails of Kathmandu.

'Explore doorways to other worlds.

'Fight for humanity’s darkening soul.

'... when the powers of the Gods wane and evil walks the Earth.

'The Last Days of Kali Yuga is urban fantasy at its darkest. You won’t find traditional vampires or werewolves in Paul Haines’s stories. Instead, you will stare deep into the heart of the cruelest monster of all: man.'

In a future Australia ruled by criminal cartels, women are vastly outnumbered by men, leading men to go to haunting lengths to procure (and subsequently utterly control) a wife. One of Paul Haines's most anthologised works, 'Wives' is also rather contentious for the brutality of the world that it shows.
