The Art of Navigation

$24.99

by Rose Michael


 

The year of the Slippery When Wet Tour three girls leave their safe suburban world to spend a life-changing night in a forest on the outskirts of Melbourne, where they plan a half-serious séance to call forth bushranger Ned Kelly. A world away in time Edward Kelley - alchemist, necromancer and crystal ball 'scryer' for Elizabeth I's astrologist Doctor Dee - is beset by visions. Narratives from 1987, 1587 and 2087 merge and converge as this gothic ghost story becomes a fantastic tale of possession in a blazing work of speculative fiction.

Praise for The Art of Navigation:

Old magic and strange memories swirl through The Art of Navigation, as Elizabethan alchemy and the technologies of the future ingeniously intersect.

BRENDA WALKER

 

Can we trust our memories? Can we trust our own minds? The Art of Navigation is deeply unsettling and daringly, deliciously, magnificently strange.

JANE RAWSON

 

The ambition of this Cloud Atlas-style story makes for an admirable and enjoyable read.
