Seven Stories brings together some of the best, most inventive short fiction writers working in Tasmania today. An idyllic walk leaves a city couple at odds with nature. A Czech artist re-maps the world by night. Young men find hope in Ceduna. A young zombie finds love in the outback. Bushwalkers discover absurd propaganda. Apathy in a public library inspires a vindictive fantasy. And an unexpected medical emergency triggers a chain of disastrous events. Both compelling and original, Seven Stories marks the emergence of a new generation of formidable voices.

Reviews

I do genuinely believe that this is a significant book in the history of Tasmanian letters.

Richard Flanagan


To read these seven haunting and menacing stories is to be made aware of the damage human beings are capable of visiting on the beauty of the planet. Whether concentrating on children with Lego, on memories of war, filming in the desert, the magic of bushland, hopeless life in Ceduna, Mawson's frozen unread books, or the horrors of a day in a library, the narratives are both lyrical and stark, every one a wake-up call, a kind of cry for help.
