JOURNEYS, the second anthology by Aussie Speculative Fiction, is a wonderful collection.
It follows their 2018 anthology BEGINNINGS, and is just as diverse and compelling.

DISCLAIMER - Contributing Author

This is the second anthology from the Australian Speculative Fiction Group, which was formed a couple of years ago.
The group was put together by a handful of emerging authors as a way of pooling their talents and creating a way of giving voice to other writers and authors of a similar mindset.

All are unique in their ow
