Suddenly there was a trench across the beach, about ten meters away from the fishermen, where before there had been nothing but flat sand. The fishermen moved quickly away as the trench heaved grey ash across the sand. They sprinted when it hurled black rocks at them.

Kerta didn't want to go to Krakatoa.

He knows that a dark spirit, Orang Aljeh, is there and he is terrified he might wake it. But Kerta is there on the volcano, and the Ghost of Krakatoa has woken up.

A powerful story of survival and loss based on the real-life events of the Krakatoa eruption in 1883.

'This book is a marvel of precision and economy, stuffed to the gunnels with ideas, and brimming over with a dark energy...a masterclass in how to write...Krakatoa Lighthouse is that rare find: an exciting, moving story that keeps opening the doors to larger questions. Baillie puts the reader right there in the moment with stunningly accurate detail...yet we never feel the dead hand of history overwhelming us.' From the 2010 NSW Premier's Literary Award Judges' Report
