And Then Vol. 2
Adventure ~ Action
Danger ~ Derring-do
Rip-snorting action adventures of the
What If... What Next...
and, most importantly, the
And Then… kind.
A cohort of Australia’s best genre writers present a strange and fabulous collection of action-packed adventure stories - each featuring two heroes.
The two-volume And Then... anthology features page-turning stories by 32 award-winning, established and emerging Australian writers of science fiction, crime, speculative fiction, horror and fantasy.
The settings are futuristic, contemporary and historical; the heroes are human, animal, alien and mythical; and their adventures are real-world, far-out, speculative, scary, mysterious, speculative and fantasastical.
Welcome to And Then... Volume Two
in which 15 authors travel in time and space from the Victorian gold rush to Regency England, from the Blue Mountains to the Outback this year and just after WWI, from all-too possible dystopian futures on earth to adventures in outer space.
Their heroes are flawed and fabulous, brave and humble. They are bushrangers, adventurers, pirates, spacefarers, desperadoes and talking swords, who face danger from all manner of humans - greedy, stupid or psychopathic; and monsters galore including cyclops, dragons, and the devil himself.
With an introduction by Janeen Webb.
