AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In Thought Crimes, Tim Richards takes the reader on a mind-bending ride through a world where nothing is quite as it seems. The lives these stories describe are almost ordinary - but an ambush lurks around every corner.

'A novice teacher accepts a job at an unconventional high school where students take 'self-expression' to odd and disturbing lengths.

'In a trendy beachside suburb, suspiciously perfect babies start appearing on young couples' doorsteps.

'A visitor from the future shakes the life out of a small Australian town.

'Blackly funny and irresistibly twisted, these stories peek behind the everyday appearance of things to explore unspoken fears and desires. Destined to become a cult classic, Thought Crimes is a one-way trip through the looking glass.' (From the publisher's website.)

    You got stuck in the mud of life.
    You felt warm and cosy. (Sharply)
    Now you're going to freeze.
