AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Escape Artists Anthology comprises a literary interarts compilation of creative and critical works by authors and artists from around the world including essay, memoir, short story, poetry, song lyrics, art, and interview. The themes include: taste, longing and melancholy; speculative fiction; and fascinations with phenomena such as UFOs, "aliens", spacecraft, telepathy, and fugue in art and literature and what these signify as metaphors and/​or literally about: contemporary society, and the inner journeys of the self in relation to others and forms of social media community, in this time of disruptive global technological change.

'The anthology was conceived and created in Newcastle, Australia, in a 19th century post and telegraph office. Read the story of how it began in the anthology.'   (Publication summary)
