The sky is the limit for new authors, for who knew Fyodor Dostoyevsky before he was first published? It’s one thing to finally pen one’s wildest imaginings and spend hours finessing them, but to discover a publisher and readers who like them too is a dream come true. Three writers offer us new worlds, where a mother crosses the globe to a bushfire ravaged land in order to save her son’s life; a conventional man living a conventional life becomes embroiled in a criminal scam; and neighbours shatter suburban harmony to wage war over building a fence.
