0 Reviews
This anthology of Australian ghost stories--from the 1850s to the present day--draws together a neglected but striking genre of fiction which works to remind those who recently settled the country how unsettled it actually is. Australia becomes the 'down underworld', a place where the dead continue to make their presence felt. The anthology includes the works of many well-known Australian writers, such as Dal Stivens, Lucy Sussex, Barbara Baynton, and Marcus Clarke.
