Sarah Waters new novel, The Paying Guests, is just out. It’s set in London in the early 1920s, where the vividness of war has faded but the world has not yet been revitalised. Alena Graedon’s novel, The Word Exchange, looks to a future where technology has taken over; while Inga Simpson’s latest, Nest, is delicate nature writing told through the life of an artist and lost children. While Helen Garner turns a novelist’ eye to a tragic story, and the murder trial of a man who killed his three sons, in This House of Grief.
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
