We’re launching the long awaited Mocklore collection Bounty by Tansy Rayner Roberts this weekend at Conflux. Join us in Canberra at the Novotel on Northbourne Avenue, 5.30pm on Sunday October 2. We’d love to hang out with you!
And don’t forget, there’s just one day left to enter to win a copy of the book on Goodreads!
It’s been a very busy few weeks in the FableCroft household! In addition to two fabulous awards ceremonies on the weekend, we also launched Kate Forsyth’s beautiful non-fiction collection The Rebirth of Rapunzel: A Mythic Biography of the Maiden in the Tower. The launch was a great success, with over sixty guests in attendance enjoying champagne and chocolate while chatting with Kate. We had a gorgeous giveaway pack, and sold lots of books, and it was just lovely.
Check out the Big Idea behind the book over at John Scalzi’s Whatever blog – thanks to John for letting us play in his sandbox 🙂

Editor Tehani is in very excellent company in the SF Mind Meld asking the question “The books that made us love science fiction and fantasy” (and is super excited to be part of her first Mind Meld!).
Stephanie Gunn reviewed Insert Title Here for the Australian Women Writers Challenge 2015 (not all the contributors are women, or Australian, but we appreciate her including it!). Stephanie says she “loved the darkness of this anthology … and all of the stories were worthwhile reading” and “…this is an extremely strong collection. The stories are varied, and I suspect that most readers will find at least one or two which speaks to them. Highly recommended.” Cheers Stephanie!
Ju at The Conversationalist comprehensively reviewed Cranky Ladies of History and notes: This book is both a pleasure to read, and gives you some small insight into the historical significance of several women, mostly those who are forgotten by modern history. It’s not that the book is educational exactly, but it does make you want to learn more, to study these women and their lives.
Speaking of Cranky Ladies, we currently have a Goodreads giveaway open internationally for two copies! Even if you already have one, they make excellent gifts, and Christmas is coming…
A different Stephanie reviewed Phantazein a while ago, over at the No Award blog, noting that it “expands beyond Western fairytales” and is a “fun read”. Thanks Steph!
Delighted to see stories from Phantazein in Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year Recommended Reading list, including Faith Mudge’s “Twelve” and Suzanne J Willis’s “Rag and Bone Heart”. Several other Aussies and plenty of great company on that list too!
