I bought this book at Conflux 11, the scifi and speculative fiction convention held in Canberra in October. There were so many books to choose from and as I love anthologies, I bought this one from Ticonderoga Press.

So glad I did. There are 16 original stories of dark urban fantasy based on cities and blood. Many of the authors are well known in Australia, such as Joanne Anderton, Kathleen Jennings and Alan Baxter. All their stories are a fascinating look at a the sayings like "the heart of the

Disclaimer: I've a story in this anthology so there's a clear conflict of interest.

And now for the Claimer: It won the Aurealis Award for Best Anthology.

As we all know, book reviews are subjective. So let’s start with some facts.

~ Bloodlines is an anthology of 16 short stories that all feature the use of blood.
~ I am one of the contributing authors, so naturally I want to persuade you to buy a copy for yourself and your significant others.
~ In March 2016, Bloodlines won the Aurealis Award (Australia) for Best Anthology, so when I say it’s a fine collection, at least a handful of judges agree with me.

Now for the subjective section… all of the st
