THE BOOKS: A LIST
Book One: Fleshers
A dazzling new science fiction series from Alison Croggon and Daniel Keene
Fleshers holds a mirror to current societal disparities and ugly elitism, not unlike young adult novels The Hunger Games and Divergent…A book that draws readers through an action-packed, multi-layered narrative and will leave them with the desire to learn more about the complex and unusual characters. - Books+Publishing
If cyberpunk dystopian YA SF is your jam, I highly recommend this amazing book. - Ellie Marney
The Books of Pellinor

New and Selected Poems 1991-2017
Raw, passionate and dazzling, Alison Croggon’s award-winning poetry confronts a world fractured by different kinds of violence – patriarchal, colonial, sexual and emotional – and finds there a difficult beauty. New and Selected Poems 1991-2017 collects poems from all nine of her books as well as new and unpublished work, and demonstrates the full range of her art: formally inventive, intellectually curious and stylistically assured.
