New Acquisition: Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse by Lee Murray

We in IFWG are excited to announce the signing of Lee Murray’s juvenile fiction piece, Dawn of the Zombie Apocalypse – the subject matter being self-evident!

Lee has been associated with IFWG for a long time and we have published her short fiction through a number of publications – we are thrilled to step it up to a novel.

We are expecting to publish the novel around mid 2019.

Lee Murray travelled by overnight train on Christmas Eve when she was three. Although she was worried, Father Christmas still found her, and left her a shiny new ukulele which Lee plans to learn to play as soon as she runs out of stories to write.

A multi award-winning author and editor (Australian Shadows, Sir Julius Vogel), Lee’s stories for young people include Misplaced, Conclave 7, Mika (with Piper Mejia), and best-loved middle grade adventure Battle of the Birds, which was listed in the Best Books of the Year 2011 by New Zealand’s Dominion Post. Her books for adults include the military thrillers Into the Mist and Into the Sounds (Severed Press) and supernatural crime-noir series Path of Ra co-authored with Dan Rabarts (Raw Dog Screaming Press). She lives in the sunny Bay of Plenty with her three favourite humans and a cute but very disobedient dog.

Cover Reveal: The Years of the Wolf by Craig Cormick

The Years of the Wolf front cover

IFWG Publishing is delighted to reveal the cover of Craig Cormick’s historical mystery/speculative fiction novel, The Years of the Wolf. The novel is based on a true story and the photograph (photographer unknown) is taken from the same time and place as the title’s source material. Catherine Archer-Wills has done a spectacular job of converting the photograph into a cover. Here is the full spread:

the years of the wolf spread

This story begins with a murder. A German internee is found dead inside a civilian internment camp during World War One, and one young internee, Arno Friedrich, determines to find the killer. But the more he probes into the lives of his fellow internees the more he discovers that little within the old stone prison is as he had imagined. He finds that the Germanic facades and fantasies the men construct hide secrets within secrets. And a killer.

The Years of the Wolf will be released and launched at Conflux on 29 September 2018. Preorder details will be released soon.

In the coastal Queensland town of Midnight Cove, thirteen-year-old Curtis Creed’s world is falling apart.

Once a talented upcoming surfer, he cannot bring himself to return to the ocean.  His inability to overcome his fear earns him the ridicule of his older brother, Dylan. Worse, his family is struggling to cope with the loss of their father in a rock fishing accident.

The summer holiday looks long and lonely for Curtis until he meets Navaya, a mysterious sea dweller he rescues from fishing line in a rock pool.

When Curtis agrees to help Navaya find the Moami, the key to an undersea cavern hiding her people’s most precious secrets, he embarks on a dangerous quest that sees him join forces with awkward but brilliant new girl in town, Morgan.

Will Curtis be able to overcome his fears to return the Moami to its rightful owners before Navaya’s enemies succeed in their deadly mission? Was his father’s death really an accident? And what exactly is the lore of the ocean?

He never promised happily ever after, but Lucinda is still dismayed by how quickly reality intrudes on her fairy tale. Assassination attempts and lightning strikes disturb her honeymoon, but the return home brings no peace of mind. When the discovery of a magical conspiracy shakes her faith in everything she trusts, she vows to expose the Fire Warlock’s most shameful secret and see justice done.

As a hot summer draws towards a violent end, Lucinda teeters between terror and rage. She’d be less angry about risking her life if she didn’t suspect her husband – her hero! – intends to step aside and let her die.
