(? - ) UK poet and novelist, active from around 2015; her poetry, first assembled as Bone Ovation (coll of linked poems 2017 chap) and Little Quakes Every Day (2017), exhibits a recurring focus on the permanence of Time, of bones, of the past within a fleece of transmutations. Hardaker's first novel, Composite Creatures (2021) inters its protagonists in a Near Future world choked by the effects of Climate Change; her second, Mothtown (2023), also set in a Dystopian world marked by constraint and visceral anxieties (see Horror in SF), may open for its protagonist a path into the Multiverse, where he may find a habitation.
