IFWG is very pleased to announce the acquisition of a collection of short fiction by Leanbh Pearson titled Three Curses and Other Dark Tales. “We have had a long standing admiration of Pearson’s work, both as a writer and an active member of the speculative fiction scene in Australia,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, “and it was a delight to have received her manuscript, and discover a fine collection knitted so well together with common themes. We know readers of dark fiction will be delighted with this.”

This title will be released world-wide in the second quarter of 2024.

Three Curses and Other Dark Tales is a world tour of dark folklore with uncanny beings reimagined into new tales, where wits, heroism and truth meet trickery, bargains and curses.

Leanbh Pearson lives on Ngunnawal Country in Canberra, Australia. An LGBTQI dark fiction author, inspired by folklore, archaeology and the environment, her fiction features in numerous anthologies. She has judged the Australian Shadows Awards and Aurealis Awards, is a recipient of an AHWA mentorship and a convention panellist. When not writing, she enjoys exploring the Australian wilderness accompanied by her dogs (the canine assistants). Leanbh’s alter-ego is an academic in archaeology, evolution and prehistory.

New Acquisition: Almost Human by Nathan Burrage

IFWG is very pleased to announce the acquisition of Sydney-based Nathan Burrage’s collection of speculative short fiction, Almost Human. “This new contract,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, “was an easy decision. Our submissions editors loved it, as do I. Burrage is a seasoned, talented writer, and it is beautifully represented in his collection of fiction, no small portion original to the upcoming collection.”

Nathan Burrage lives in Sydney with his wife and two daughters. He is the author of FIVEFOLD, a supernatural thriller first published by Random House Australia in 2008. FIVEFOLD was subsequently translated into Russian and released as Code of Kabbalah, and is still available as an ebook on Amazon and other digital book platforms.

In 2005, Nathan graduated from Clarion South, a six-week residential writing program based on the famous Clarion workshops in the United States. It’s fair to say he’s never been the same since.

In 2011, Nathan was Co-Convenor of the Aurealis Awards, which resulted in them being hosted in Sydney for the first time. He remained on the Organising Committee in 2012 and 2013.

Nathan has over twenty short story credits, and has been shortlisted for both the Aurealis Awards and the Ditmar Awards. He is represented by the John Jarrold Literary Agency and is at work on a new Fantasy series, as well as a side project for his youngest daughter.

Almost Human will be released world-wide late in 2022.

This book is a celebration of Sheldon’s mastery of the genre.”
