    Science Fiction has always drawn some of our most creative writers to its form.  Back in the early decades of the twentieth century events conspired to propel the whole genre forward from the earlier works of Jules Verne and other luminaries. 
    New media technologies were coming to the fore with radio and television to add to new industrial processes and ideas. Hollywood’s golden years were creating ‘escapist fare’ as the world battled with war and depression where the impossible seemed possible.  On the streets pulp magazines were becoming the dominant form of mass market reading.  The real world had shrunk and other worlds were sought. 
    Writers were able to fuse ideas with technical ‘know how’ and create fabulous inventions of other worlds and other times.  These inspired other writers to re-imagine almost everything in the search for new situations and environments. 
    A Golden Age was upon us.  These are their stories…….

    Voyagers - Twelve Journeys...

    Every science-fiction story is a voyage of some kind—to a world of a far-off galaxy, to our own world of the distant future or the remote past, to some interior corner of the human soul. In VOYAGERS: Twelve Journeys through Space and Time, Science Fiction Grand Master Robert Silverberg collects twelve of his finest short stories and novellas, all of which carry readers to the next level of imagination and into a new universe of the mind. This new collection spans 60 years of work by the Hugo Award-winning Silverberg, traveling from one end of the universe to the other, from the dawn of time to its final hours. A journey through its pages reveals time-travelers from the future come back to witness a catastrophe of our own time, Spanish conquistadores looking for—and finding—the Fountain of Youth, a tourist in Mexico stepping into an alternative universe, and spacefarers among the stars making a surprising discovery. The range of these stories, the kinds of voyages they describe, just begins to demonstrate the scope of science fiction, and the lengths to which Silverberg's sparkling imagination can leap.

    This collection of heroin stories from Eric Bogosian, Jerry Stahl, Lydia Lunch, and more “will satisfy devotees of noir fiction and outsider art alike” (Publishers Weekly).   On the heels of The Speed Chronicles (Sherman Alexie, William T. Vollmann, Megan Abbott, James Franco, Beth Lisick, etc.) and The Cocaine Chronicles (Lee Child, Laura Lippman, etc.) comes The Heroin Chronicles, a volume sure to frighten and delight. The literary styles of these stories are as diverse as the moral quandaries they explore.   From the groundbreaking novels of William S. Burroughs to the mind-altering music of The Velvet Underground, heroin—in all its ecstasy and tragedy—has been the subject of many an underground masterpiece. Collected here are all-new short stories about the infamous drug by some of today’s most celebrated and provocative writers, including Eric Bogosian, Lydia Lunch, Jerry Stahl, Nathan Larson, Ava Stander, Antonia Crane, Gary Phillips, Jervey Tervalon, John Albert, Michael Albo, Sophia Langdon, Tony O’Neill, and L.Z. Hansen.

    Terra nullius means 'empty land'. It is the title of the first story in this collection, which is related by Hugh Foulkes, bullock driver to Captain Charles Sturt, as the men of the expedition wait at Depot Glen for Sturt's return from his final push in search of the mythical inland sea. To the early explorers, the land appears empty and they try to ignore the presence of the indigenous people who inhabit the vast plains through which they pass. The explorers and colonists believe the land is theirs for the taking. Subsequent stories in the collection illustrate how Australia was populated by migrants from many places, their reactions to their new home and the blending of their diverse cultures. There are stories that celebrate migrants of British background, of Greek and Italian and Chinese origins. And the last story tells the story  of a refugee family that is as pertinent today as it was in 1956, the year in which it is set. Many of these stories have won awards or been published in anthologies. They represent a body of work that has grown over many years. Margaret Visciglio is best known for her debut novel The Blue Roses of Orroroo, which won both the Three Day Novel Race at Salisbury in 2007 and the South Australian People's Choice Award in 2013. She has also written a young adult novel, On the Edge, but the short story was her first love. The short story, Margaret believes, is excellent discipline for a writer as one has to concentrate plot, characterisation and setting into a very small space. Although the novel gives one time to expand on themes, the short story must be succinct. Every word counts. Margaret Visciglio is currently engaged in writing Only Two Letters in Orroroo, the much-awaited sequel to The Blue Roses of Orroroo.

    Dark Encounters - A Collection...

    “A collection of outstanding ghost stories” from a Scottish historian who “tell[s] a beautifully chilling story” (Undiscovered Scotland).  Dark Encounters is a collection of classic and elegantly unsettling ghost stories first published in 1963. A spine-tingling collection, these tales are set in the brooding landscape of Scotland with an air of historic authenticity—often referring to real events, objects, and people. From a demonic text that leaves its readers strangled to the murderous specter of a feudal baron, this is a crucial addition to the long and distinguished canon of Scottish ghost stories.   For those who seek out the unnerving, the unknown, and the unexplainable, Dark Encounters is guaranteed to raise the hair on the back of your neck.   “A really atmospheric book. Best set aside for a cold, dark winter’s evening in front of a roaring log fire!” —Women Together   “Like most really good ghost stories, there is an element of fact or historical myth surrounding it to make the tale that much more authentic. The author also has the knack of keeping the reader hanging on his words to try and find out what was the cause of the tale.” —Army Rumours
