Alis Franklin

Alis Franklin is an Australian author of monstrous queer speculative fiction.

The Wyrd

Sitting at the intersection of the magical and the mundane, the Books of the Wyrd are a queer Australian urban fantasy series about old gods and new tricks.

The Dragon of Rosemont High


Four months ago, the death of his parents sent Elias Drake from New York City to the small town of Rosemont. Living with his workaholic aunt and trying to fit into a new school is no small task, especially not when a string of murders turns out to have potentially supernatural origins.

Other works


Edited by Alis and Lyss Wickramasinghe, who wanted a collection of stories about monsters.

Unnatural Order was produced as one of the Canberra Speculative Fiction Guild‘s semi-annual anthologies, and highlights the work of both the guild’s members and the Australian speculative fiction community in general.
