Robbie Arnott’s Flames, Robbie Arnott , extract novel

'The sand was hard and sharp and blowing up into Karl’s shins, whipped cruel by the dead northerly coming in over the white-chopped sea. He increased his pace, trotting across the beach, juggling his bucket and tackle box and rod, heading for the boatsheds and the trail that lay between them, the one that curled through the boobialla and up to the smoky heat of his house and lounge and family.' (Introduction)

To Open the Door, or to Barricade It, Christian White , single work essay

'Inspired by Gillian Flynn’s frenetic suspense and Stephen King’s masterful world-building, Christian White’s The Nowhere Child (Affirm Press) is a combustible tale of trauma, cult, conspiracy and memory, the remarkable debut of an exhilarating new Australian talent.' (Introduction)

(Introduction)

It should be a simple task – help Sharkey move his beehives up the coast road. Travelling St Mary’s Pass with Sharkey is treacherous in more ways than one – but as Nathan soon finds, nature has its ways of extracting justice.'  (Introduction)

Palimpsest, Anne Kellas , single work autobiography

'As Hobart rebuilds and reinvents itself, the deeper stories of the city can feel lost under layers of history and memory – but when the lens is personal and the heart is open, the past and present can live side by side.'  (Introduction)
