Author(s): Bill Congreve
Souls Along the Meridian is the latest collection of short fiction from William J Atheling award-winning Australian dark fiction author Bill Congreve. Each story bears Congreve's hallmark style - dark, prosaic and thought-provoking. From contemporary ghost stories to apocalyptic futures, from a deserted amusement park in an isolated town to the claustrophobic depths of the London Underground to the heat-drenched brutality of the Australian outback. These are tales of things we all hope and fear might just exist, somewhere, far from the safety of our lives. Souls along the Meridian is a book of dark futures and dreams. As the title story shows us, it is also a book about staying true to oneself in the face of whatever the world might throw at us. Prepare to be provoked and entertained.
