Beneath the calm aqua waters of the Great Barrier Reef, there is an ongoing war for survival. It is a war among the creatures, the life forms and the coral that make up the reef. It is so threatened it could disappear within 30 years. Above the reef on a small coral cay, two communities come together in an uneasy alliance: a tourist resort and a scientific research station. Ambitious Blair Towse is appointed assistant manager of the resort with his wife, Jennifer, who finds herself isolated, lonely and forced to confront her childhood fear of the sea. On the surface, the island is all you could wish for: a lush resort, a naturalist's dream, a diver's delight. But Jennifer begins to discover the island holds secrets and dangers.

Naked Teenager Floating on the Reef: College student and part-time prostitute, Julie Larsen, is found floating facedown on the coral reef. The local police write it off as a simple drowning while the girl was fishing, even though she has deep lacerations and bruises on his upper body and her clothes, gear and truck are missing. She has had numerous, violent arguments with her stepfather, and several ugly incidents with two of her navy clients. The girl 's wealthy grandfather is dissatisfied with the police report and hires the Saipan International Investigations Agency, owned and operated by retired police sergeant Tom Parker and Chamorro warrior Carlos Montano, to investigate the incident. The agency is overwhelmed with other work and bring aboard stateside retired Detectives Trish Friedrich and Dalmacio DeJesus Dalton (3D), along with polygraph expert Daniel Delgado, to help out. The crew soon agrees with the grandfather about the shoddy, false report and their quest for the truth take them as far away as the Philippines and Guam, USA. A key witness turns out to be Jungle Jesus, a hermit living deep inside the tropical forest, who knows probably what happened to the young victim. The striking denouement concludes with astonishing connections between the murdered amateur prostitute, her family, the island social and government structures and the corrupt cops. As a coordinated effort, the private investigators are determined to see Julie 's murderer brought to justice.

Elizabeth Arnold's first book of poems documents her struggle with cancer. A book-length sequence of poems, The Reef rockets the reader through a Heraclitean chute of accelerated life experience by way of anecdote, satire, facts from medical science, and lyrical sweep. This multilayered work explores the depths of illness, investigating the way one's attitude toward it changes over time and how one gathers and processes information in order to make sense of it. "Arnold's poetry, much more mature than most writers' first book, links lyrics, slight narratives, and a bit of satire into a work of glorious affirmation. The book is a splendid read."—Mary Sue Koeppel, Florida Times-Union "For this commitment to both the autobiographical honesty and aesthetic risk, The Reef should be valuable to anyone who has been waiting for where contemporary American poetry is going."—Agni

Has-jahn: a continent of exotic cultures, cities and long-forgotten technology. Two members of a race once thought extinct wash up on the shores near the city of Escha. In their possession is a call for help from a human living on the little-known tropical island of Arya, where their race is being murdered. A crew of freelance explorers, led by the charismatic Santiago DeBrelt, travels to discover the mystery behind the killings. However, Santiago's controversial nature leads to him being accompanied by government agents — who wish to explore Arya and find out why Eschan naval vessels have disappeared in the seas surrounding it. Meanwhile, on the outskirts of Rhoam, a city in central Has-jahn, a band of terrorists are embarking upon an epic journey to the very same waters. Still angry from an old war with Escha, they've gathered explosives and weapons, and will allow nothing to interfere with their quest for a phenomenal revenge. But secret pasts are revealed and soon all eyes turn to the coral reef off the coast of Arya. With echoes of Joseph Conrad and China Miéville, The Reef is a modern fantasy journey with original creatures and peoples, a story of relationships foundering on tropical sands and in dark waters.

Iain McCalman's brilliant history of the Great Barrier Reef, told in twelve extraordinary tales, charts its shifting status from labyrinth of terror to global treasure. Equal parts gifted storyteller and acclaimed historian, McCalman brings to life the people who've shaped our knowledge and perception of this World Heritage-listed site. Arguing that the Barrier Reef is a product of human as much as natural history, created by minds as well as corals, McCalman describes encounters between peoples and places, ideas and environments, over the past two centuries and more. Where today the Reef is known for its astonishing underwater beauty and diversity, once it was notorious for the shipwrecks in its treacherous waters. Navigators struggled to chart a safe passage through, and scientists later theorised about the creation of this massive structure - the largest marine environment on the planet. Quixotic individuals spent years sailing the globe for an answer, and the fiery debate between Darwinists and creationists caught the world's attention. Then came successive waves of resource hunters and exploiters, followed by beachcombers and artists who fought to stop them, and the marine specialists who first became aware of the threats to the Reef's survival. In between, the Indigenous peoples of the Reef gave succour to castaways like Eliza Fraser, and were then vilified for it. Other survivors of shipwrecks lived for years with the clans of the region, were adopted by them and taught their traditional ways of life. The first social, cultural and environmental history to be written of the Great Barrier Reef, The Reef is an effortlessly readable and often moving story of one of the seven natural wonders of the world. PRAISE FOR IAIN McCALMAN'S DARWIN'S ARMADA: 'The most eloquent of storytellers. Iain McCalman has all the gifts: he unearths buried threads; distills complex thought, ambition, emotion and pure chance; tempers wit and irony with wonder; finds drama in profound ideas.' Don Watson 'What a fine book this is! Deeply researched, skilfully constructed and written with engaging flair.' Henry Reynolds 'Like few other historians, but much like Charles Darwin himself, Iain McCalman has that happycombination of talents - rigorous accuracy, gleeful irreverence and narrative flair - which turns fact into something better than fiction.' John Collee, scriptwriter, Master and Commander 'Reads as a combination of Boy's Own travellers' tales stretching from the Amazon to Antarctica, and a scientific adventure story as racy as any historical novel.' The Guardian 'Exhilarating . . . [an] originality of perspective, along with prose taut and vivid, makes Darwin's Armada a standout.' Weekend Australian
