In Tales from the Crypto-system we are treated to a decade-spanning collection of perceptive and powerful tales by one of Australia's premier short story writers. Let Geoffrey Maloney reveal the secret of time travel in a moment of perfect and terrible pain. Explore the failed dreams of a post revolutionary Australia. Deal with the vast and impenetrable bureaucratic nightmare of an alien empire. Uncover the secret of eternal life, and the paternal terrors of a shoebox. Relationships and revolutionary verities crumble, automatons play out the Great Game in an India that might have been but never was. These are stories at once challenging and entertaining and always unexpected. After reading this collection you will understand why Geoffrey Maloney is simply one of the best Australian short story writers working today.
