New Release

The year is 2156. Dystopia. Misrule. Pirates, badlands, transdrones, cowboys, rebellion.

The Skellig is a story of hope and redemption where hard tech and stainless steel meet legend and myth.

The skellig’s name is Gamble. She’s all woman. Most of the time. On the black of the moon she’s another creature altogether, a praying mantis. A deal she made, with the soul of earth known as the Grace, a few thousand years ago. Sometimes, over a couple of days, she’s a bit of both.


A desperate escape north is the only hope for thousands of runaways. Guided by an indigenous and immortal starman, the shapeshifting skellig, a Maori mystic named Mukata and Terrence, a scientist who should be the enemy but is not, they make the journey.

Bull and Rattlesnake Lil drive the Airstream, called the Midnight Express, packed to the rafters with escapees and hybrids. Alice, in his armored all-terrain tank, raises his rainbow pennant on a fifteen foot high middle-finger to the drone swarms overhead.

A militarized force, not far behind, is intent on annhialation. Freedom is beyond the northern border, a mighty, raging river, guarded by a mythic race called Álfur.

It is live free or die in the attempt.

initINITIATION | a memoir reflects on the moral and ideological changes of the last sixty years. Written in a perennial voice de Angeles, witch and scholar, rewilds her own story and transforms cultural stereotypes into the language of myth.

“Witch people, like magicians and sorcerers, conjurers, druids and hoodoo hexers, like cunning women and cunning men, kadaicha, shaman, manitou, angakok, curandera, bruxa, enchanters and shapechangers are needed in this world. They are the stories not bound by dogma or displayed as relics in a museum. They cause disquiet. They summon questions but it’s not their way to give answers. They take us to the wild and the frightening places. The cave entrance under the ice at the base of that crevasse. Blue handprints on the rock face imprinted with an ochre of confusion. By people we cannot name and from a time we cannot confirm. Once Upon a Time people. People of the reindeer. Volcano people.”

Born in 1951 and put up for adoption, de Angeles was sold by the church for £300. She was always going to be a problem.
November 24th 2016, Melbourne launch.
