Short Story - Anthology

Edited by Paul Collins

Welcome to a world of ‘beauty rich and rare’, a world of natural (and unnatural) gifts on every page – from humour to horror, thriller to fantasy – encompassing the past, the present and the future.

Our ‘young and free’ creators include: Michael Gerard Bauer, Gary Crew, Justin D’Ath, Scot Gardner, Kerry Greenwood, Libby Hathorn, Leigh Hobbs, Sofie Laguna, Kirsty Murray, James Roy, Shaun Tan and Gabrielle Wang.

Included in this anthology is my short story The Green Boy.  When I was a child, I read of the Green Children of Woolpit and ever since I’ve been intrigued by the idea of strange children coming up out of the earth and what their world might look like. Writing The Green Boy gave me the chance to play with the idea of meeting a magical green child.

Rich and Rare is a fantastic collection of stories by dozens of Australia’s top authors for children and young adults.
