Old magic and strange memories swirl through The Art of Navigation, as Elizabethan alchemy and the technologies of the future ingeniously intersect.
The year of the Slippery When Wet tour three girls leave their safe suburban world to spend a life-changing night in a forest on the outskirts of Melbourne, where they plan a half-serious seance to call forth bushranger Ned Kelly. A world away in time Edward Kelley alchemist, necromancer and crystal ball ‘scryer’ for Elizabeth I’s astrologist Doctor Dee – is beset by visions. Narratives from 1987, 1587 and 2087 merge and converge as this gothic ghost story becomes a fantastic tale of possession in a blazing work of speculative fiction.
Can we really trust our memories?
