‘Every Warren story is a trip with no map.’ – Gemma Files
‘Her fiction shifts across genres smoothly and intelligently, never settling for the easy path… she doesn’t flinch.’ – Andrew Hook
‘As with most of the best horror writing … the power of Warren’s strongest stories comes from the mirror they hold up to our everyday practices and prejudices.’ – Ian McHugh

Through Splintered Walls Art Project
It’s a publisher’s worst nightmare. In June 2012, award-winning Western Australian small press publisher, Twelfth Planet Press, was deeply disappointed when 300 copies of their latest release, the Kaaron Warren short story collection Through Splintered Walls came back with a significant printing error. The top line was missing from every one of the book’s 185 pages, rendering the print run unsellable.
The book was reprinted, leaving the publisher and author with a faulty print run of beautiful, but unreadable books. Rather than pulping the misprinted copies, and sending them to landfill, Twelfth Planet Press approached the City of Rockingham with the idea of partnering with artists to create something meaningful, engaging, and thought-provoking with the faulty books.
The Through Splintered Walls Art Project repurposed a publisher’s faulty print run of books into a paper art project to produce meaningful, engaging, and thought-provoking artwork. A manufacturing error became an opportunity to engage with the community, to create beautiful objects and to support local artists.
