Borderlands Trilogy

The most acclaimed series of speculative fiction events in recent memory comes to a rousing conclusion with Borderlands Trilogy, the third and final convention from the Borderlands team.

Following the cutting edge explorations of science fiction in The World Within and horror in That Which Scares Us, Borderlands turns its attention to fantasy: the oldest genre of them all.

From the ancient mythologies that founded our societies to the best-selling high fantasy novels that fill bookshelves around the world, Borderlands Trilogy will investigate, interrogate and celebrate fantasy fiction in all of its numerous shapes and forms.

Simon Brown

Simon Brown’s first professional fiction sale was to Omega in 1981. Since then he has had several short stories appear in Omega, Aurealis and Eidolon.

Privateer, his first novel, was published in April 1996. It was followed by Winter in 1997 and the short story collection Cannibals Of The Fine Light in 1998.

Between 2000 and 2002, Simon wrote the Keys of Power trilogy, a critically acclaimed fantasy saga published by HarperCollins. His next fantasy trilogy begins in 2004 with Empire’s Daughter, published by Pan McMillan.

Dave Luckett

Dave Luckett was born in Stanmore, Sydney, but moved to Perth as a child and has lived there ever since. Since graduating with a BA in History and a Diploma of Education, he has worked both as a teacher and a public servant.

Dave is the author of the highly acclaimed Tenebran trilogy, which was published between 1998 and 1999. The first volume, A Dark Winter, was shortlisted for the 1999 West Australian Premier’s Award. More recently, Dave has been writing the popular Rhianna series of young adult fantasy novels: Rhianna and the Wild Magic, Rhianna and the Dogs of Iron and Rhianna and the Castle of Avalon.

Dave Luckett is rapidly making a name for himself as one of the Australia’s best writers of fantasy and science fiction.
