        Twice bestirred, twice entangled in human affairs (An Older Kind of Magic, The Nargun and the Stars), the earth-spirits Wrightson has invoked from Australian aboriginal lore are now ubiquitous, a primordial underground—whose rising, previously an incident, takes on the dimensions and import of a Flood. Or, in the careless heat of an Australian Christmas season, of an incipient ice age.   Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed that the column of your favourite posts has been emptied. The good news is, this website now supports an Atom webfeed. Is that sufficiently random for you? Let me explain. For a while, now, glitches.

      A holiday in Bali would not be complete without lying around by the pool or pantai and getting some good ol’ leisure reading in. Or if you live in Bali, giving yourself permission to just be santai one weekend to devour books is an easy way for some self-loving and (cheese alert) feeding your soul.. Reaching for the latest New York Times bestseller may be the obvious and easy choice – but. Books, images, historic newspapers, maps, archives and more. Despite the precautions of the old aborigine woman she calls Granny, fourteen-year-old Jo falls under the spell of a secret thing in the Australian hills, a girl endlessly alive and crying for the death that will not take her.
