  • Epigraph: It is the earth's crust which engulfs. That which seems solid, melts, then re-forms, careless, indifferent, unaware. The sea turns to fire. The earth is solid. It opens. Air is fluid: it refuses to grant passage. Fire freezes.

    'Boundaries blur. The skin of the world spirals out of control, bringing distant myths to fresh, vivid life. There are no maps. Expect the unexpected-truths as slippery as blood and as sharp as bone. If it can be imagined in the heart or in the mind of even one human being, then it is happening now, in the dark where no one can see... From the razor-sharp imaginations of the best genre writers in Australia comes this new collection of the gothic and the supernatural. Moving, surprising, erotic, unsettling and unrelenting in the desire to entertain, Southern Blood is the state of the art of horror in this country' (Publisher's blurb).
