Product Description

In 2010 the best-selling book at the world science fiction convention was... unexpected.

Humankind carries the past as invisible baggage. Thirteen brilliant writers explore this, looking at Australia's cultural baggage through new and often disturbing eyes.

Baggage explores layers and complexities that are oddly Australian. If you think Australian culture is all about surfboards and mate-ship, you may find Baggage distressing.

What is Australia? What baggage do Australians carry? Pick up this book. Have a read. You know you want to.

"Baggage collects many of the finest voices in Australian speculative fiction. Each author contributes a unique cultural perspective, with stories ranging from the deeply personal to the highly disturbing. Baggage is an anthology not to be missed." -- Shane Jiraya Cummings, OzHorrorScope

"Baggage is a fascinating exploration of Australian issues through characters and situations that feel immediate and real. There's little in the way of escapism here, but instead much subtlety and nuance, combined with stunning writing. From the incendiary, no-holds-barred 'Acception' by Tessa Kum to the quiet power of K.J. Bishop's 'Vision Splendid,' and beyond, this anthology tackles difficult and diverse subject matter." -- Jeff VanderMeer, World Fantasy Award winner
