AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Dream Weavers is Paul's most successful anthology to date. It was a ground-breaking collection of fantasy stories for young adults. ASO purchased a third of its print run before it was printed - 1500 copies were distributed throughout the Queensland education system. It features original stories by Isobelle Carmody, Keith Taylor, Sean McMullen and others. Within a year of its printing, Russell Blackford's story 'The Sword of God' won both the Aurealis Award and the Ditmar Award, and with Beverley Macdonald's story was reprinted in The Year's Best Australian Science Fiction and Fantasy. Paul and Howard Goldsmith's collaboration was reprinted in Heinemann's English Book Three. The cover won Best Cover in the Ditmar Awards' (www.paulcollins.com.au).
