Machinations: An Anthology of Ingenious Designs, edited by Chris Andrews with illustrations by Les Peterson.
Spaceships. Magical devices. Flying Machines. Instruments to probe the afterlife. Technology friendly and otherwise…
Welcome to another anthology from the Canberra Speculative Fiction Guild. Twenty speculative stories ? Science Fiction, Horror, Fantasy, and nearly every conceivable mix ? with some film noir thrown in for good luck.
Oh, and werewolves, of course.
Machinations is the work of 20 talented authors, editors and illustrators — from Canberra and elsewhere around Australia.
