    y She's Fantastical : The First Anthology of Australian Women’s Speculative Fiction, Magical Realism And Fantasy Lucy Sussex (editor), Judith Raphael Buckrich (editor), Melbourne : Sybylla Press , 1995 Z97825 1995 anthology short story poetry extract Sussex and Buckrich bring together Australian female authors who are quirky, idiosyncratic and inventive, presenting a mix of reprint and original material. The twenty-three authors whose works appear in this anthology range from the well known, such as M. Barnard Eldershaw and Gabrielle Lord, to emerging writers such as Leanne Frahm and Lisa Jacobson.

    In her introduction, American author Ursula Le Guin argues that women writers see 'a rather different world to men and describe it by rather different means. Working within the parameters of the fantastic provides "a rebel's mode" which enables women writers to "knock the posts out from under the status quo".'
