After the Rain

The aftermath of rain, be it showers, storms or floods, can change the landscape. In this book, fifteen of Australia’s best and brightest speculative fiction authors offer literal and figurative interpretations of what follows rain, in this reality and others.

From the earliest of bible stories to World War II Germany, from tiny creatures grown of raindrops to alien planets and future worlds, After the Rain considers the changes rain can bring, if one steps slight left of reality.
