LAND OF THE GOLDEN CLOUDS is a quest in the spirit of the grand storytelling of 'Lord of the Rings' and 'Watership Down'.
An unlikely band of travellers from different tribes and civilisations traverse a vast, irradiated continent eventually joining forces in a final attempt to defeat a common enemy. To successfully do this though they must first learn to conquer their own prejudices. Set in Australia 3000 years into the future this epic has been created with a breathtaking vision.
LAND OF THE GOLDEN CLOUDS, the long-awaited second novel from highly acclaimed author Archie Weller is a truly remarkable book. It is also totally unexpected, moving into the terrain of fantasy/science fiction. A storytelling myth for a new Dark Age.
'Archie Weller's stories are more than the events they describe they also create a dreaming and it is the interplay between these opposites, the bleak reality of the character's everyday lives and the magic of the place they inhabit, that give his stories their unique creative tension.' - MARTIN FLANAGAN
'GOING HOME is one of the most singular and impressive collections of contemporary stories to appear in Australia. I eagerly await Archie Weller's next effort.' - ADAM SHOEMAKER.
