Flame Tip, a collection of bushfire-themed short stories, will be released in March by Hybrid Publishing.
An unhinged mourner hacks off his hair and marauds his way through MONA. A seventy-year-old woman seeks a companion while another revisits her great love story. A man spends his days tramping through national parks and his nights composing emails of complaint. A spurned wife has the last laugh and a young girl marries her weather man.
Flame Tip is a collection of short fictions that are as diverse in subject matter as they are in length, all tenuously (and sometimes obscurely) connected by the Tasmanian Black Tuesday bushfires of 1967. The stories touch on love, fire, infidelity, danger, loss, laughter and redemption, and you’ll find a dollop of good old-fashioned Aussie humour interlacing the occasional grim tale.
