SQ Magazine

A while ago, Gerry Huntman asked me to submit a story for the Australiana edition of SQ Magazine. I wrote “Eleanor Atkins is Dead and Her House is Boarded Up” as part of my current thematic obsession with the horrors of dementia, and with the standard ideas of what happiness is.

There are also stories from Alan Baxter, Angie Rega, Sean Williams and others, and excellent summaries on the State of Australian Spec Fic from Tehani Wessely and G. N. Braun, so well worth the click!

Ditmar Awards

The Ditmar Awards have been announced, and I’m very pleased to say that my Aurealis Award winning story, “Air, Water and the Grove”, has received a nomination for best short story. Excellent!

The shortlist is here. The link to vote is there as well. I have my eye on Best Novel as well, because I really like both Trucksong, by Andrew Macrae (Twelfth Planet Press) , and Fragments of a Broken Land: Valarl Undead, by Robert Hood (Wildside Press).
