ANTIQUE FUTURES
T H E   B E S T   O F   T E R R Y   D O W L I N G

Reading a Dowling book is rather like sampling a fine wine. The scenes and images roll delicately over the mental palate, leaving a lingering aftertaste of exotica, of visions and marvels seen with eyes that have gazed long on wondrous things.                                      Mythopoeia
Terry Dowling is Australia's finest fantasist. His internationally acclaimed work explores the lush landscapes of distant, alien-invaded futures, the vast, beautiful interiors of an imagined Australia and the darkest reaches of the human psyche, constantly redefining the genre.

Antique Futures presents the very best of Terry Dowling in a single volume for the first time. From the Aurealis Award-winning horror of "Jenny Come to Play" and the psychological drama of "The Quiet Redemption of Andy the House" to the wide-screen adventure of "Nobody's Fool" and the sweeping, heroic saga of "Time of the Star", these marvellous tales represent the best speculative fiction has to offer.
