We're growing... Things in the Well!

Things in the Well is the publications arm (or tentacle?) of Oz Horror Con, which was established in 2012. Oz Horror Con's mission initially was to 'Bring the horror to Oz!' During our first few years, we ran three horror conventions with international guests, arranged multiple screenings and began publishing books.

We also set up and ran many social media groups. In 2015, we began to focus more on the publishing side of things and together with a group of over 30 artists and writers, we published The Refuge Collection series of short stories, all for charity (Sanctuary Australia Foundation and Refugee Action UK).

These Tales from Refuge comprised 36 stories spanning 6 volumes and these were published in 2 books: 'The Refuge Collection... Heaven to Some!' featuring stories by Ramsey Campbell, Paul Kane, Lee Murray, Kaaron Warren, Martin Livings, and more, and book 2, 'The Refuge Collection... Hell to Others!' features stories by Gerry Huntman, Mark Allan Gunnells, Amdi Silvestri, Brian Craddock, Marty Young, and more. 

36 short stories set in a shared dystopian future world called
'Refuge' - Heaven to Some, Hell to Others!
Proceeds to charities: Sanctuary Australia Foundation and Refugee Action UK

Also published by Oz Horror Con, The Refuge Collection is available in eBook format as well as softback and hardback from Amazon as well as The Book Depository. All the profits go to charity. Several of the stories are also available as Audible audio books.
Lee Murray's 'The Thief's Tale' won the Sir Julius Vogel (SJV) Award for short fiction in New Zealand in 2015, and Matthew R. Davis's 'The Heart of the Mission' was shortlisted for the Australian Shadows Award for best long fiction in 2016.
