Steven has a new job, with an important-sounding job title: Australia's Regional Death. On a good day he thinks it has quite a ring to it, but on a bad day (that's most of them) it's more of a toll. He's recently averted a Regional Apocalypse, but a huge national death count - instead of a normal, manageable death count - is still a big risk. And with barely a month to go until his first Death Moot, where the world's thirteen Deaths get together to talk, er, death, Steven feels a crisis is imminent. People are dying in the unusually brutal summer heat. Monstrous Stirrers are on the rise as their dark god draws near. Someone is trying to kill him. And he has a conference to organise. Steven must start managing Death, before it starts managing him, or this time the Apocalypse will be more than Regional.

About the Author

Trent Jamieson is a writer and editor and has published over 70 short stories, two of which have won prestigious Aurealis Awards. He also teaches creative writing, and has recently taught on the highly regarded Clarion South programme, the professional development course for genre writers.


Death for Australia is in a bad way. After the failed purge in Death Most Definite, Steven finds himself in way over his head as the head of Mortmax Industries in Australia. He is drastically understaffed, a massive international conference is due in a few weeks, and an ancient zombie god is about to devastate the world. The last thing he needs is a disgruntled former employee trying to kill him. Being Death, it is hardly likely to cost him his life, but it may end up costing the love that has sustained him so far and the lives of his remaining friends. Managing Death is the second book in Jamieson's `Death Works' series, and it really picks up the pace from Death Most Definite. The story twists back and forth like a maddened snake. There is less time spent setting up the fantasy premise, which adds intensity to the plot, and after the story gets its hooks into you it doesn't let up until the end. With a final book still to come, many of the plot elements remain unresolved. However, there is enough resolution to close off the book. Now I just have to wait for book three.
