Six writers: no rules. Six journeys beyond the borders of the real. The Unknown raised to the sixth power (publisher's blurb).
X6 is a collection of novella-length journeys beyond the borders of the real from six of the most exciting speculative fiction authors working in Australia today - Margo Lanagan, Terry Dowlng, Cat Sparks, Paul Haines, Trent Jamieson and Louise Katz.
In a future Australia ruled by criminal cartels, women are vastly outnumbered by men, leading men to go to haunting lengths to procure (and subsequently utterly control) a wife. One of Paul Haines's most anthologised works, 'Wives' is also rather contentious for the brutality of the world that it shows.
