A Book of Endings

Front Cover
Twelfth Planet Press, Jan 1, 2009 - Short stories, Australian - 288 pages
Twenty-one short stories. "Deborah Biancotti's superb collection of short stories reminds me of the engaging work of Robert Aickman. She is a damned fine storyteller and her sheer originality, zest, energy and style fill the dark skyline of the modern world with luminous flares of mysterious force." - Graham Joyce. "There's wonder to the world, and a dark magic. And Deborah Biancotti wants to show it to you. Not just a series of short stories but an encyclopaedia of the uncanny, and a haunting reflection of how close the everyday is to madness. This is astonishing stuff - clever, humane, and more than a little profound." - Robert Shearman. "A Book Of Endings, the long-awaited collection of stories by Deborah Biancotti, one of Australia's best writers of short weird fiction (and I do mean weird) from Twelfth Planet Press, is a very tight and beautifully presented book." - Tansy Rayner Roberts, Not if You Were the Last Short Story on Earth
