Celebrate the legends of Australian fantasy. Extraordinary voices ... extraordinary worlds.

Come to Erith, to a faerie tale with a sting, or to Obernewtyn, long before the Seeker was born. Revisit a dark pocket of history for the Magician′s Guild or get caught up in the confusion of an endlessly repeating day in the Citadel. Cross the wall, where Charter magic is all that lies between you and death. A trip with a graverobber can be gruesome, and it′s hard to share the fear of a woman who must kill her husband if her child is to rule ...

A mysterious tale plays out in Sevenwaters. Catch up with Ros and Adi as they prepare for the greatest change of all. Other twists in these fabulous tales bring us to demonic destiny and an alternate WWII.

About the Editors

Jack Dann is a multiple-award winning author who has written or editor over seventy-five books, including the international bestseller The Memory Cathedral, which was 1 on The Age Bestseller list, The Rebel: an Imagined Life of James Dean, and The Silent, which Library Journal chose as one of their 'Hot Picks' and wrote: 'This is narrative storytelling at its best...Most emphatically recommended.'

He is the editor of the groundbreaking anthology Dreaming Down-Under (with Janeen Webb), which won the World Fantasy Award in 1999, and Dreaming Again, which Bookseller+Publisher chose as their 'Pick of the Week'. B+P gave it five stars and wrote: 'Here are stories that engage with the building blocks of our culture and others that give shape to our shared darkness and light. Dreaming Again is at once quintessentially Australian and enticingly other. If you read short fiction you'll want this collection. If you don't, this is a reason to start.' Dann lives in Australia on a farm overlooking the sea and 'commutes' back and forth to Los Angeles and New York. His website is www.jackdann.com.
