Creeping in Reptile Flesh


Savage murders that leave no one dead. Politicians intent on ontological genocide. Feral creatures invading the wilds of Sydney and the Scrub. In "Creeping in Reptile Flesh" one man embarks on an investigation into a maverick Member of Parliament whose eccentric exterior may hide the seeds of apocalypse.

This collection of 14 weird tales will take you to the edge of madness and beyond ― and as a special bonus to celebrate this new edition to a classic collection by one of Australia's foremost dark fantasists, a fifteenth tale will make sure you stay there.

Requiems for the Departed
Irish Crime, Irish Myths.

It has been said before, that every story has already been told.

Maybe so. But if you’ve got the gift of the gab, you can tell the same tale as often as you like and still give it a life of its own every time.

Requiems for the Departed flaunts that gift seventeen times over with top shelf stories from Ken Bruen, Maxim Jakubowski, Stuart Neville, Brian McGilloway, Adrian McKinty, Sam Millar, John Grant, Dave Hutchinson, and many more.

The children of Conchobar are back to their old mischievous ways, ancient Celtic royalty, druids and banshees are set loose in the new Irish underbelly with murder and mayhem on their minds.

Requiems for the Departed contains seventeen short stories, inspired by Irish mythology, from some of the finest contemporary writers in the business.
