A Matter of Perception

Filed under: Book Review,Guest Post — Annie Evett @ 12:15 am

What a lovely early Christmas present I was sent the other day!  Fellow Author Tahlia Newland has just published a new young adult book of short stories sure to delight any teenager who loves to read.

She forwarded me a copy of her book in ebook format. From the front title to the end page, it was entrancing.  I can only imagine how beautiful it is as a physical book would be to hold.

Below are some details of the publication. Be sure to check her out – I am certain she is one of those rising stars!

Title: A Matter of Perception

Author: Tahlia Newland

Publisher: Catapult Press

Release date: 7th November

The blurb

Do you see what I see? Take a bunch of supernatural beings, a battle of magical light, a mysterious hole in the pavement, a dream of a future past and a pair of rose-coloured glasses, mix them with a little romance and a smidgen of philosophy and you might be left wondering if it isn’t all just a matter of perception. 

This entertaining, heart-warming and thought-provoking collection of urban fantasy and magical realism stories includes ‘The Grorgon Slayer’s Choice’ and ‘The Boneyard’, a semi finalist in the Aussiecon 4 Make Ready fantasy/scfi competition of 2010.
