'I ride this day upon the Worldroad, alone, except for Courage, who rides on the pommel of my saddle fluffing his feathers. I did not dream of journeying thus as a child.'


This is the unforgettable world of Isobelle Carmody, presented in fourteen stories written over a period of thirteen years.


Within it you will find roads of paradox on which an angel might be a torturer, or a princess might reject a prince to save a rooster. These are paths travelled by seekers of the difficult deepest truths never found on straight roads; here a boy searches for his truename, a group of pilgrims is led by a song on an ancient journey, and a beast discovers hope.


Enter this world and you will never again be sure where reality ends and imagination begins, for sometimes the greatest truths can only be told through imagination.


From one of Australia's finest writers of fantasy comes a stunning collection of stories full of provocative ideas and haunting images.
