Step up, as close as you dare…
…to a place at the edge of sanity, where cicadas scritch through balmy summer nights,
at the edge of town, where the cell-phone
coverage is decidedly dodgy,
at the edge of despair, where ten darushas will get you a vodka lime and a ring-side seat,
at the edge of the universe, where time stops but space goes on...
From the brink of civilisation, the fringe of reason, and the border of reality, these stories are infused with the bloody-minded spirit of the Antipodes, tales told by the children of warriors and whalers, convicts and miners: people unafraid to strike out for new territories and find meaning in the expanses at the edge of the world.
