Publisher's Summary

I love a sunburnt dystopia.

Straya lies in ruins. A once-proud nation, former Australia has regressed into a patchwork civilization cowering under the deadly heat of a merciless sun. Savage violence lurks around every corner. Good pubs, but...

Affable young mutant, Franga, risks life and double-jointed limb to help provide for his makeshift family of mutie kids and increasingly senile friend and mentor, Ken Ages. After finding a strange artifact in the deadly Downlow district, Franga inadvertently starts a horrifying chain reaction.

Something terrifying takes form in New Sydney. A colossal beast rises as unspeakably powerful as it is malevolent, and if Franga and his crew of misfits can’t stop it? Then all of Straya is completely farked.

Set in a futuristic Australia desperately coping with inequality, racism, and the effects of climate change, Straya balances canny social allegory with subversive wit and an oddly optimistic sense of hope.
