The Hidden People
Welcome to the secret world of Ísland’s Huldufólk
What happens when a researcher from New York visits one of the world’s smallest countries to study their myths? Gates open between worlds, people change into animals, Vikings fight trolls, and she gets kidnapped by the ones no ordinary mortal can see – that’s what!
Hillary Maynard-Keynes gets more than she bargained for when she travels to Iceland for her PhD on the Hidden People. Will her true love, Thor Thorson, escape the clutches of the Huldufólk and return to his former life? Will she? And what will happen to the innocent troupe of actors on tour to Reykjavik? The countdown to Midsummer’s Day is on.
This action packed adventure is a tour de force by Melbourne’s second funniest novelist, Kit Fennessy; delivering the goods in an un-put-downable escape hatch into the world of the Hidden People.

The Floatation Tank
Every three thousand, two hundred and twenty four years the planets of our solar system fall into alignment with each other. Every twenty four years Jupiter returns to your birth sign. In 2006 Mars came closer to Earth that it had been for millenia.
Magnetic poles play off each other in this interplanetary ballet and, when combined with gravity waves of a certain frequency, can alter cosmic destiny.
What do these astrological titbits have to do with this novel? Absolutely nothing. They may, however, have been the driving forcebehind you picking up this fantastic story of complete strangers caught up in a rollercoaster of politics, intrigue, the media, cults, pyromaniacs and floatation tanks.
Kit Fennessy lives in Melbourne and this is his first novel. He hopes it doesn’t fall into alignment with Uranus.
