More wonderful news from Down Under are piling in. After the recently announced reprinted short story collection of Kaaron Warren, “The Gate Theory”, two other fabulous writers hailing from Australia put their talent at work. Angela Slatter and Lisa Hannett are two of the most original and powerful voices of modern speculative fiction and after they proved their great talent both individually and in a common project, the excellent “Midnight and Moonshine”, they are joining forces again for another collection, “Baggage”. “Baggage” will be published by Twelfth Planet Press in its Twelve Planets series, a series of short story collections that includes excellent writers such as Kaaron Warren, Deborah Biancotti, Margo Lanagan and Kirstyn McDermott.
What Are the Twelve Planets?
The Twelve Planets are twelve boutique collections by some of Australia’s finest short story writers. Varied across genre and style, each collection offers four short stories and a unique glimpse into worlds fashioned by some of our favourite storytellers. Each author has taken the brief of 4 stories and up to 40000 words in their own direction. Some are quartet suites of linked stories. Others are tasters of the range and style of the writer. Each release will bring something unexpected to our subscribers' mailboxes.
