Classic Australian spec fic

macabre an anthology of australian horror stories

Two quick links to tease your wallet:

Aurealis releases a set of “classic Australian SF” novels (published originally 1880s-1930s; I suspect the SF is speculative fiction rather than pure science fiction) with introductions by some of the today’s best talent.

And Macabre, a door-stopper of a volume that showcases Australian horror stories from yore to now. Due out in September.

Mmm.

  1. Book 3 of Classic Australian SF: Vandals of the Void is definitely Science Fiction – possibly the first example of Space Opera ever, including spaceships battling off Venus 🙂

    Book 6 – Out of the Silence, is also (I think) Science Fiction. The others… less so.
