And Then... it happened again

And Then... 
The Great Big Book of Awesome Adventure Tales

Volume 2
has been released into the wild.

Thirteen boundary-defying, genre-bending, adrenaline-charged 

stories of intrigue, bravery, mystery and peril

by fifteen Australian genre writers.



Once upon a time, in an inspired fit of lunacy, Clan Destine Press
invited some of the best genre writers in Australia
 and New Zealand to join us in a grand adventure.

The challenge was to write cliff-hanging, action-packed adventure stories of the What If / What Now / And Then… kind.

What we asked for was rollicking stories of cliff-hanging quests or mysteries,
page-turning deeds and escapades, with two heroes, set in any time or place, 
but with a touch of something Aussie or Kiwi.

What we ended up with was enough stories for two volumes and a must-read anthology of tales that will transport you to worlds both familiar and fantastic.

Or as Janeen Webb, who wrote the Introduction, says:

"Some of these visions are dark indeed, but And Then… remains a wondrous strange collection of
exotic and exciting tales that encompass a huge sweep of possibilities, past, present and future. Enjoy!"
