Notes

  • Dedication: To my mother, Iris Vera Florence (Steele) Spencer and my father, Walter Collings Spencer, with love.
  • 'The Mummy's Foot' is described by the author on her web site as 'a long piece that might be called a story or might be called a prose poem (I called it a story when I won the Age Short Story Award with it in 1994, and a poem when I put it in this book)'.
