''he began publishing fantasy with ''Annie, California Plates'' in The New Review for June 1974. His first novel, CONTINENT (collection of linked stories 1986), is a fabulation set on an imaginary southern continent in an otherwise present-day world. Crace's spare narrative - the novel comprises six independent sections, none more than short-story length - stands in marked contrast to the expansive narratives that characterize most such works from Austin Tappan Wright's Islandia (1942) on'' (John Clute & Gregory Feeley/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
