Many of you who follow Isobelle on Facebook would have seen yesterday's gleeful "Finished!!!!" on her timeline and read about it there, but for those of you who haven't seen it:

Metro Winds is due for publication by Allen and Unwin in May 2012. Isobelle finishes Metro Winds Edit 24/02/2012: A full version of the cover was sent over by Isobelle this morning - you can download it here: Metro Winds final cover (2.3MB). Information from the Allen and Unwin Metro Winds page states:
An engrossing collection of stories from one of Australia's most loved fantasy writers, and creator of the acclaimed Obernewtyn Chronicles. A girl is sent across the world to discover her destiny in the dark tunnels of the Metro. Another seeks a lost sister in a park where winter lasts forever. A young man fulfils a dying wish. A mother works magic to summon a true princess for her son. A man seeks an ending to his story. An old man goes in search of his shadow. This is a world of desire and transformation, the real and the not real, from the queen of modern fantasy.
Bring on May 2012!

    Green Monkey Dreams is possibly one of my favourite books of all time. I've been calling it the 'Holy Grail of Carmody novels' for years :P
    So happy that we're getting some new short stories!
