Description

Not Your Mother's Book Club proudly presents award-winning author Kirsty Murray in celebration of the story collection, Eat the Sky, Drink the Ocean

Be transported into dystopian cities and alternate universes. Hang out with unicorns, cyborgs and pixies.  Learn how to waltz in outer space. Be amazed and beguiled by a fairy tale with an unexpected twist, a futuristic take on a TV cooking show, and a playscript with tentacles. In other words, get ready for a wild ride!

This anthology is a groundbreaking collection of speculative fiction by twenty of India and Australia’s most talented writers and illustrators. I co-edited the book along with Indian authors Anita Roy and Payal Dhar and the collaborative process was both intense and richly rewarding. The collection includes 73 pages of graphically illustrated short stories, ten prose stories and a playscript that I co-wrote with Manjula Padmanabhan.

Contributors include: Samhita Arni, Kuzhali Manickavel, Manjula Padmanabhan, Vandana Singh, Payal Dhar, Anita Roy, Annie Zaidi, Penni Russon, Kate Constable, Isobelle Carmody, Justine Larbalestier, Alyssa Brugman, Kirsty Murray, Margo Lanagan, Priya Kuriyan, Prabha Mallya, Amruta Pail, Lily Mae Martin, Nicki Greenberg and Mandy Ord.
