it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy

Kim Wilkins is, without doubt, one of the best writers of fantasy and speculative fiction Australia has ever produced. "The Year of Ancient Ghosts", a collection of five novellas, showcases her prodigious talent.

My favourite novella in the collection was "Dindrana's Lover", which is a clever story told about the sister of Percival from the Table Round. My least favourite - by quite some margin - was "Wild Dreams of Blood", which didn't grip me the way the other four novellas did.

"Crown of Rowan" was also very enjoyable and I would very much like to see the novel that is rumoured to be set in the same kingdom of Thyrsland.

All in all, a really great read from one of Australia's finest weavers of speculative fiction. Go get a copy and support a local Australian small press in the process.
