IFWG is very pleased to reveal the front cover of Rebecca Fraser‘s upcoming collection of dark short fiction and poetry, Coralesque and Other Tales to Disturb and Distract. The cover art and design is by the incomparable Greg Chapman, who has worked with IFWG in past projects (as has Rebecca).
A surfer who becomes horrifyingly one with the sea. A new mother’s devastating search for belonging. A stone gargoyle with a violent history. A fisher boy who discovers the real cost of forbidden love. A farmer whose delight at drought-breaking rain quickly turns to terror. A hedonistic rock star who manifests double trouble. A young girl’s chilling sacrifice for justice. A dirty ex-cop with a dirtier secret. An unscrupulous mayor’s solution to rid her city of the homeless…
These are just some of the characters you’ll meet in this collection of dark offerings.
From the harsh terrain of the Outback, to the depths of the Pacific Ocean, the wilds of Tasmania, dystopian futures, enchanted lands, and the familiarity of suburbia, Coralesque and Other Tales to Disturb and Distract takes readers on a journey into unsettling, unforgiving, and unforgettable territory.
Coralesque and Other Tales to Disturb and Distract will be released worldwide on 15th April 2021. Preorders will be offered in the new year.
It is with great pleasure that IFWG reveals Rebecca Fraser’s young teen novel’s cover art and design. Here we reveal the front cover as well as the full spread, as the full scope of the art is a must-see. Art and design by the very talented Catherine Archer-Wills.
Curtis Creed and the Lore of the Ocean will be released in Australia on 7th June 2018.
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?
Cthulhu Deep Down Under Volume 1 will be released on 15 November 2017, but we can’t resist revealing the cover art and design by Steve Santiago.

IFWG Australia is very pleased to reveal Zena Shapter’s upcoming science fiction/thriller, Towards White.
They know what’s going to happen to you… after you die.
Scientists in Iceland think they’ve figured out one of our greatest mysteries – where the electrical energy in our brains goes after we die. According to the laws of physics, one form of energy must always become another form. So the electrical energy in our brains and nervous system can’t simply disappear…
When ex-lawyer Becky Dales travels to Iceland to track down her missing brother, she doesn’t care about the groundbreaking discoveries, or the positive-thinking practiced by the Icelanders – she just wants her brother back. Having stumbled on something she thinks the Icelandic government wants covered up, Becky must piece together the answers fast… before she becomes a victim herself.
This novel will be released in a few months, and officially launched at Conflux 13. Great cover design by Elizabeth Lang.
