"Melbourne-based author, Felicity Dowker begins her collection of fifteen stories with the award-winning ‘Bread and Circuses’, involving an unusual feminist zombie evolution. Dowker believes that writing horror is “a way to set wrong things right”. Certainly, many of the stories, accompanied by Dowker’s background footnotes, involve retribution, particularly from a female perspective .‘Us, After the House Came Back’ sees revenge and solace for the wife in an abused relationship, while “the bad guy” has it coming in spades in the ultimately gory, ‘The Female of the Species is More Deadly Than the Male’. Dowker’s evocative stories benefit from the stylish production of enterprising Western Australian small press Ticonderoga."
