Cassandra by Kathryn Gossow


Finalist Best Fantasy Novel 2017 Aurealis Awards

Cassie is a farmer’s daughter with a fortune teller gifts.  She tries to use her psychic gift to help the people she loves and mostly fails. Her genius neighbour Athena offers her help, except Athena is a Greek goddess reincarnate. It might be Australia in the 1980s but the remaining Greek gods still think humans are their plaything.

The Dark Poet

The Dark Poet

Some people are so broken they can only cut us.

With poetic dexterity, Aurealis Award finalist Kathryn Gossow interweaves eight short stories of longing and alienation featuring outcasts and the misunderstood. From a homeless storyteller to a gardening soothsayer, to a copy editor who owns a pair of stubborn chickens, readers will come face to face with the humanity of people easily judged by a rigid society.

At the heart of these stories is the Dark Poet, a charismatic and broken man, who leaves a trail of debris drifts in and out of people’s lives.
