              Age range 9+ 1901. The slide clunks into the lantern, and Phantoms come alive on the wall. The father-and-son Magic Lantern team of Bert and Tom Eliot are masters of The Art of the Story. The only problem is that they are missing a wife and mother. Then one morning eleven-year-ol...d Tom wakes to find his father missing, too. The Lanternist's apprentice is thrown out of home, forced to work for the arch-criminal Jimmy Sacks, arrested and imprisoned. Will he ever be able to escape with his new friend Max and make the long, flea-bitten, rat-infested journey to Sydney in search of his parents? The Lanternist is a story about stories, and how they show us a way through life, despite callous landladies, corrupt officials, criminal companions and the problems with living in incinerators. But mostly, it is about searching, and making your own endings. Celebrated author Stephen Orr's first foray into young adult literature is a thrilling historical adventure.

              James Brandt can't decide who's considered worse in his hometown: aboriginals, vegetarians, or gays. He was two out of three, so he got out early. He's back in town for the first time in twenty years because cousin Tony's body has been found under the Kippen Bridge, although Jame...s is unsure if the Brandts ever worked out their favourite son made the blacklist long before he apparently jumped to his death. The news that Tony has left him the entire family farm triggers James's journalistic curiosity - and his anxiety - which he's starting to suspect came from the same place somewhere in his turbulent journey to adulthood. But it's the brutal homophobic attack James survives that draws him into a hunt for the reasons one lonely Kippen farm boy in every generation kills himself. Standing in the way is James's father, the town's recently retired top cop, who's not prepared to investigate crimes no-one reckons have taken place. James must play nice with family, avoid putting pressure on police, accept the media just aren't interested, and use every newshound's trick he ever learned in order to uncover the circumstances that led to Tony's untimely death... That's if he lives longer than twenty-four hours in this remote community that would prefer he'd never returned.
