Adelaide based author Sean Williams has published over 50 novels and 120 short stories, mostly in the SF genre. Williams has said of the 14 short stories in Uncanny Angles (Wakefield Press, $29.95), all of which have a background preface, "The one thing these stories have in common, apart from their determination to exist, is a desire to take something familiar and twist it to reveal a different face. Be it a dragon, a guitar, a boy's club, or one's true and only love, my intention is always to leave the reader seeing these things differently. From a new and uncanny angle".
