Themes: Fantasy/ Sci-fi/Novellas

In four different novellas, all with a different take on the word Conclave, four writers from Tauranga have created a group of stories that are all remarkable for their believability (the test of any good fantasy or sci-fi story) and for their readability. A landlocked mermaid, on-line friendships to mysteries hidden in DNA, from a fleet of spaceships heading to a hopefully brave new world to Conclave Seven - a Universal Games event, everything has its roots in logic and yet the vibrant imagination of all four writers soars high above it all.

Year 9 up/ Age 13 up

****Google their names because they have all written other stories and books and between them have an impressive collection of awards. This includes a short listing for The Storylines Tom Fitzgibbon Award for 2014 and winning The Sir Julius Vogel Award for science fiction and fantasy writing (two times).

The four writers are most generously sending me three copies of Conclave as Giveaways to school/ college libraries. These will be sent to the first three people who email me after reading this message. Don’t know my email address? Look on the About me- Barbara Murison page on this Blog.
