Murnane’s first collection of short fiction, republished after 30 years, traces a journey through Melbourne as the author negotiates the conflicting demands of Catholicism and sex, self-consciousness and intimacy, alcohol and literature. ‘… the space that Landscape with Landscape truly inhabits [is] that of the imagination. – Shannon Burns, the Australian.

blood-mirrorBrent Weeks The  Blood Mirror

Gavin Guile, ex-emperor, ex-Prism, ex-galley slave, formerly the one man who might have averted war, is now lost, broken and trapped in a prison crafted by his own magical genius. But he has no magic at all. Worse, he might not be alone in his prison. ‘One of the best examples of modern fantasy that I have read,’ – Fantasy Fiction.

everyonebraveChris  Cleave Everyone Brave is Forgiven

When war is declared, Mary North leaves finishing school unfinished, goes straight to the War Office, and signs up.  Love and passion during  World War II entangle three lives in violence, friendship and deception, inexorably shaping lives and illuminating human battles. ‘With Everyone Brave Is Forgiven Cleave cements his reputation as a skilful storyteller, and a sensitive chronicler of the interplay between the political and the personal.’ – Hannah Beckerman in the Guardian.
