About David Vernon

I am a freelance writer and editor. I am father of two boys. For the last few years I have focussed my writing interest on chronicling women and men’s experience of childbirth and promoting better support for pregnant women and their partners. Recently, for a change of pace, I am writing two Australian history books. In 2014 I was elected Chair of the ACT Writers Centre.

In 2010 I established the Stringybark Short Story Awards to promote the short story as a literary form.

Review by: Oakkie on July 29, 2014 :
This book is for lovers of science fiction.
Contained are short stories that present a myriad of different futures: from dystopic worlds to marvels of technology. From action heavy battlegrounds to underground cities. From love stories to tragedies. On one page will be a resurrected lover, and on another will be the last wild dog in Australia. All these glimpses into a possible future are concise and beautiful.
For a lover of science fiction, this book has it all.
