Description

Ea, master of Apsu, the great water beneath the earth; Gelert, the faithful hound; Medusa and Herakles; sirens, valkyries, fairies; Leonardo Da Vinci and Snow White - these are just some of the legendary characters that resonate within this thought-provoking garland of short stories from Australia. Archetypes from ancient mythology, lurking in the depths of our psyches, peer at us through the haze of history; cautionary tales from our nursery years remind us of what can happen when we disobey The Rules; well known themes of obsession, betrayal and exploitation, love and loss and renewal are skillfully manipulated into new and compelling forms. From the lighthearted and tongue-in-cheek, to the sad and the sinister, this selection of tales with their clever mythic echoes, is sure to entertain, enlighten and challenge readers of all ages.
