Anna Tambour is an author of satire, fable and other strange and hard-to-categorize fiction and poetry.

Her novel Crandolin was shortlisted for the 2013 World Fantasy Award.[1] Tambour's collection Monterra's Deliciosa & Other Tales & was published in 2003, and Spotted Lily, a novel, in 2005. Ebook editions of both of these were published by infinity plus[2] in 2011.


Locus listed both Tambour's collections and both novels in their Recommended Reading lists.[3] Her 2015 collection The Finest Ass in the Universe was shortlisted for an Aurealis Award for Best Collection.[3] Spotted Lily was shortlisted in 2006 for the William L. Crawford Fantasy Award, and was recommended for a British Fantasy Society Award (Best Novel). In 2008, The Jeweller of Second-hand Roe[4] won the Aurealis Award for best horror short story.

Tambour lives in the Australian bush, but has lived all over the world and is, in Tambour's words, "of no fixed nationality".[5] In addition to writing fiction, Tambour also writes about and takes photographs of what she calls "magnificants — magnificent insignificants".
