About

Whenever superheroes need therapy, they check in to the Haven. But what happens when their sanctuary is no longer safe?

Deep beneath the Singapore General Hospital and away from the worshipping public, superheroes at the Haven take to the sofa for much-needed psychoanalysis. But when a death occurs, the facility is immediately locked down. Small-time superhero Landslide finds himself in a whodunnit, and discovers that being cooped up underground amongst unstable superheroes with immense power is not the best place to be.


About the author

Darren Chen is a third-year undergraduate with the National University of Singapore’s Faculty of Law. Before matriculating, he served as a Lieutenant with the Republic of Singapore Navy, and prior to that, he graduated from the Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) in 2015.

He started writing short-form prose when he joined the Ministry of Education’s Creative Arts Programme back in Secondary School. Up until that point, his usual avenues of artistic expression were drawing and painting. Realising that he had some capacity for creative writing allowed him to escape from the mundane routine of student life and build worlds beyond of the classroom.
