17 Tales of Real Women and Unreal Worlds edited by Liz Grzyb. A powerhouse of award-winning Australian and international authors will take you to seventeen incredible and unreal worlds. It is about women, independent women, dealing with the world around them. It’s celebrating the stories of women who, every day, need to be strong and brave in many different ways. A powerhouse of Australian and international authors will take you to . . . * an unknown planet, where one of the arks has crash-landed, killing most of the last vestiges of humanity searching for a new home planet * a dystopian world where fresh fruit and vegetables are illegal, and people must get their necessary nutrients from featureless bars * Mars, where it takes something unusual to transcend the black and white world of science * dystopian Australia where the conglomerates control everything, except for a couple of small independents and of course, gutsy guns for hire * a future society where marriages are a question of corporate mergers, rather than of affection * where the fae take too many liberties with the human world, and someone must stop them * where the Cursebreaker faces Egyptian grave-robbers, or "Guild treasure hunters" as they would prefer to be known . . . . . . and ten other unreal worlds. 17 Tales of Real Women and Unreal Worlds edited by Liz Grzyb.
