A lonely, overweight vampire tends a sleazy video store in inner-city Sydney…

A multi-billionaire sacrifices everything to become Earth’s first ambassador to the stars…

A legendary time-travelling assassin finds himself pitted against the greatest detective that never was…

A young father goes to extraordinary lengths to save his child after a car accident…

A collection of works old and new from the pen of Tasmanian author Dirk Flinthart, these stories deliver a perilous gauntlet of speculative fiction from contemporary fantasy through thoughtful science fiction all the way to disturbing horror. A dizzying, eclectic display of accomplished storytelling grounded in a deeply human emotional landscape, this book is sure to strike fire.
