An Australian Air Force base patrolled by werewolves. A planet where wages are paid in luck. A future where copies are made of criminals to interpret their dark dreams. A medieval cavalry of mothers who are only permitted to take as many lives as they have created.In every world, an imbalance of power. Something terribly askew between women and men, humans and wolves, citizens and constructs, light and dark.In every world, asymmetry.‘The combination of strange and familiar gives Dyer’s fiction the power wielded by the best SF. The stories unerringly find the human inside the bizarre. These are unsettling, poignant, marvellous. Read them. You will be glad you did.’ - Nancy KressVolume 8, Twelve Planets collection series showcasing Australian female speculative fiction short story writers.
