The Great Unknown

"You are about to enter another dimension..."

I was invited by writer and critic Angela Meyer to contribute to The Great Unknown, a collection of stories nodding to The Twilight Zone.

I'm alongside some serious novelists and short story writers, like Carmel Bird, Paddy O'Reilly, Ryan O'Neil and Krissy Kneen.

The Great Unknown has already received a couple of great reviews.

One in The Melbourne Review, by David Sornig, calls it a "an entertaining, disturbing and thought-provoking collection". David also nods to my story, 'Art', noting that "[e]ven philosopher Damon Young expertly turns his hand to fiction."

A more recent review by Rachel Robertson, in the Australian Book Review, writes that Angela has "curated a collection of works that will inspire, confuse, surprise and amuse." Rachel calls my piece a "highly evocative story," which is generous of her.

Congratulations to Angela, and to publisher Spineless Wonders, for this highly readable (and often bloody unsettling) collection.

(Also: how schmick is the cover by Michael Vale.)
