You'll be writing home about our November authors!

Our November Supa-Stars continue to shine brighter with more authors added to the Brisbane and Adelaide lineup!

We welcome pop-culture journalist and commentator, Maria Lewis (Who's Afriad?), Jane Abbott (Watershed) and Angela Slatter (Vigil) - appearing in both cities.

New York Times Bestselling author, Matthew Reilly (Contest, The Four Legendary Kingdoms), and YA author Lian Hearn (Tales of Otori, The Tale of Shikanoko), and Aurealis Award winning author Kim Wilkins (Daughters of the Storm, Sisters of the Fire) will be appearing as city exclusives in Brisbane.

And finally, Adelaide's city exclusive is author Alison Goodman, who weaves history, magic and mystery with her latest trilogy, Lady Helen and The Dark Days Club.

Come and meet some of the most captivating writers of new release action, thriller, sci-fi and fantasy. They will all be on hand to meet fans old and new at Supanova, joining authors Peter V. Brett and Alan Baxter who have already been announced.
