This book brings together the best Australian authors of fantasy fiction writing today. From Isobelle Carmody's tragic romantic style to Terry Dowling's complex and technical worlds, Damien Broderick's straight-faced player in the game of worlds, and Carmel Bird's intriguing 'genetic unconscious deciding factor' all the stories in this collection share the same fascination with the fantastic. This element, the 'not quite of this world' quality that defines fantasy writing, has been challenged and paid tribute to between the pages of this impressive new anthology. Take off on the journey of a lifetime, sliding through vistas and technologies undreamed of, multi-worlds and single, the mythological and mystical, the disconcertingly grim, the humorous, reconstructed worlds of past great writers, and what may be circling our world, even now. This is literature, the pure joy of the written word as it was always meant to be: inventive, imaginative, challenging. Peter McNamara and Margaret Winch have spent a decade prying loose the very best of Australian fantastic fiction available. 'Forever Shores' follows in the wake of their hugely successful 'Alien Shores'.
