Nominated for the Aurealis Award
Angel Dust is the first story collection by Australian rising star Ian McHugh. McHugh is a Writers of the Future winner, and has a number of significant overseas short fiction sales.
Angel Dust collects 15 incredible fantastic visions. A number of these were first published in Asimov's and Beneath Ceaseless Skies.
Four stories are original to this collection.
Asimov's editor Sheila Williams says of this writer, "Ian McHugh has a remarkable ability to render the alien utterly convincing. His nonhuman lives are so powerfully depicted that we can easily, and sometimes uneasily, immerse ourselves completely into their worlds."
