One night Raymond Gillen, shortly after winning over £12,000 in a lottery, went for a late-night swim in the waters of Lake Otway and never came back.

Three years later drought is taking its toll, and Lake Otway is close to death, losing the last of its water. Five men and two women wait to find out whether the shrinking lake will uncover Gillen's body.

    The discovery of the stolen red monoplane on the dry, flat bottom of Emu Lake meant many things to many people. For Elizabeth Nettlefold, the chance to nurse its strangely ill passenger meant a new purpose in life. For Dr Knowles, brilliant physician and town drunk, it meant the revival of a romantic dream. For a person or persons unknown, it meant a murder plan gone badly awry. And for Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte, it meant one of the toughest cases of his career.

    Next door to us, crowded on the east and west by large houses, was the Mantles' narrow little brick place. It seemed to be subsiding crookedly into the earth like an ill-laid tombstone, and was a sunless warren, dim humidity in summer, dim moisture in winter. The laneway to its back door ran flush against our side wall, and beneath the Mantles' lounge-room window, a furze of moss grew a quarter of an inch thick on the mortar.

    An elemental force present at the creation of Australian rock 'n' roll, Johnny O'Keefe converted incredible drive, a tremendous flair for showmanship and a comic spirit into status as Australia's first rock star and a national icon. Johnny was dead at 43 after 30 hit singles, 28 albums, and a succession of self-inflicted disasters. Today " Shout", "Wild One", "I'm Counting on You" and "Sing" remain as indelible hallmarks of the early years of Australian rock 'n' roll.

    Flight - you'll dream about it. She had never seen the sky in all her life before. How high could she fly? What was the limit? She was already so high the Earth was no longer real. Only her in the sky. Every spiral pure joy. This was Flight. It was for this she'd risked and endured so much. It had to be worth it. The dream of being able to fly is now a physical reality but only the rich and powerful can afford the surgery, drugs, and gene manipulation to become fliers. Peri, a poor girl from the regions, will sacrifice anything to get her wings and join this elite but the price is higher than she could have imagined. So why then does she throw it all away?
