HUNTING [Novel]. Typescript, computer generated in 1997. 517 pages, with submission letter and plot summary from Hösth to Tor Books senior editor David G. Hartwell dated 4 April 1997. HUNTING, published April 2013 in trade paperback and e-Book formats, was a finalist for the 2013 Aurealis Award for Best Young Adult Novel. "Ash Lenthard doesn't call herself a vigilante. She's merely prone to random acts of derring-do, and occasional exhibitions of tomfoolery. Her friends, the Huntsmen, have never stepped over the line while patrolling the streets of Luinhall. That was before the murder of Ash's beloved guardian, Genevieve. Now, Ash Lenthard is out for blood and even when the hunt sends her to the palace, on a collision course with a past identity she would do anything to forget, Ash cannot, will not, back down." - synopsis from Hösth's website. Hösth, an Australian author, writes "what I like to read: stories about worlds where magic is real, women aren't relegated to the background, and expectations are twisted slightly out of skew." Nearly fine overall. (#157448).
