AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Craig Cormick's latest collection of stories follows the paths of the unwinding global financial crisis, using satire and speculation to take us on journeys into near futures that could easily be our tomorrows.' (Publisher's blurb)


  • Launched at the National Library of Australia, 12 July 2009.
  • Epigraph:

    Les smulacres d'or & d'argent enflez,

    Qu 'apres le rapt au lac furent gettez

    Au desouvert estaincts tous & troublez.

    Au marbre script prescript intergetez.

    The images of gold & silver are inflated.

    After the theft they are thrown into the lake

    It is discovered that all is exhausted & dissipated by debt.

    All scripts and bonds are wiped out.

    - Nostradamus, quatrain 28 of century 8
