January 08 New Releases

As is usual here in Australia, January is a quiet time of the year in terms of new crime / thriller releases. In fact, I have only been able to track down one.

Fivefold by Nathan Burrage (pub. Random House) : A debut novel by an author who has had quite a few speculative fiction short stories published in various science fiction and speculative fiction journals. This is billed as a mystical thriller and begins with a discovery beneath a ruined church. Five university friends uncover a secret that has far-reaching consequences. Nathan has also been nominated for an Aurealis Award and won an AntiSF Award for his short stories. You can find out a whole lot more about Nathan, his shorter works plus the opening few pages of Fivefold by visiting his website.
