The Never Never Land

The Never Never Land, Edited by Mitchel Akhurst, Phillip Berrie and Ian McHugh

theneverneverland

Australia has it own mythologies. Some of them were here long before Europeans arrived; some of them are yet to come. Steam-powered bushrangers. Restless penal colonies. Robotic mining operations. Fairy colonies in the gum trees and old ghosts in the laneways. Drought and fire and flood and new life struggling to emerge from the dust. These are the stories we tell ourselves and the stories we want to hide from.

Thirty new stories from some of Australia’s best-known speculative fiction writers and some of its newest.
