AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Victoria Scott, scientist and hardened sceptic, accepts a job at an isolated weather station in the Norwegian Sea. But there are shadows outside her cabin window, rumours about a hag that visits in nightmares, and disturbing sense of familiarity in the deep, haunted forest: almost as if she has a connection with the island and its past. (Libraries Australia record).

The Process of Genre: Authors, Readers, Institutions Kim Wilkins , 2005 single work criticism
— Appears in: TEXT : The Journal of the Australian Association of Writing Programs , October vol. 9 no. 2 2005;
Kim Wilkins looks at the question of genre noting that '...genres are not static, ahistorical categories. Rather, genres are processes.' Wilkins uses as an example her own novel Giants of the Frost (2004) which 'was positioned and re-positioned in terms of genre: via my own intentions, via reader reception and via institutional influences (e.g. the university, my publishers, the media, booksellers).'
