Fear Factor Terror Incognito
Edited by Meenakshi Bharat & Sharon Rundle

Indian edition published by October 2009;
Australian edition published by Pan Macmillan Picador Australia, March 2010.

Stories from Australia and the Indian subcontinent, features David Malouf, Salman Rushdie, Tom Keneally, Rosie Scott, Susanne Gervay, Gulzar; with a foreword by Yasmine Gooneratne:

"In English and in English translation, uttered in many different voices like so many rockets launched from different points of a devastated landscape, there rises from the pages of this astonishing book the sound that today drowns every other concern in all but the most remote and isolated parts of the earth . . . The writers in the Bharat/Rundle anthology do not offer solutions. Instead, they lead readers along the hidden paths of an unfamiliar psychology to make their own discoveries."

Comments from Peter Bishop on my short story The Price Tag which is included in this anthology:

"I've known the work of Sharon Rundle for some years. Let me invent a category for writing such as Sharon's: quiet hauntings. You read the story, and hours later and then hours after that you realise it's still there in your mind:

'Since my father retired he has been roped into helping with his wife's good works. Laying up treasures in heaven, as she calls it. After dinner she's a whirlwind in the kitchen, making cakes and tarts and biscuits for the old people. The rich smell of pastry and cooked fruit sends sweet messages to my stomach and I burn my tongue on a jam tart.
"Don't feel you have to wash up, dear," she says. "Just because I've been up to my elbows on my feet all day."' Quiet but deadly."

Peter Bishop, Director of Varuna The Writers' House.

Comments from Elizabeth Webby in her introduction to Beyond the Grave:
'In her stories, 'The Price Tag' and 'The Crown', Sharon Rundle deals with the all too common family fallings out over an inheritance. In the first story, however, the tone is largely comic, while the second is full of tension and violence."
