Elizabeth Bryer grew up in Heyfield and now lives in Birraranga/Melbourne, on never-ceded sovereign lands of the Gunaikurnai and Kulin nations respectively. Novels she has translated from Spanish include Claudia Salazar Jiménez's <i><b>Blood of the Dawn</b></i> (Deep Vellum, 2016) and Aleksandra Lun's <b><i>The Palimpsests</i> </b>(David R. Godine, 2019), for which she was awarded a PEN/Heim from PEN America. She was inaugural translations editor of <i>The Lifted Brow</i>, and she is still hanging around at Brow Books. A Naomi Alderman, Paul Auster or Emily St John Mandel for Australian letters - Elizabeth Bryer is a powerful new voice: an imagination like no other. In a near future city locked in a kind of perpetual twilight, an antiquarian bookseller accepts a very strange commission - the valuation of a rare codex. Within its fragile pages is the story of another book, another codex, but unravelling the mystery may mean unravelling the nature of reality itself...

A noirish mystery. A speculative fiction with a social conscience. An unbridled imagination, and a scholar's bibliomanic preoccupations. <b><i>From Here On, Monsters</i> </b>stretches the boundaries of what we consider fiction in weird and totally wonderful ways...
