Because that’s what they’re doing, now that 100 Lightnings is finally in the wild (i.e., at the usual online retailers, and certain booksellers around Adelaide).

The volume of flash fiction was commissioned in 2011 — not all lightning strikes fast — but should pack a bit o’ zap, given the names on that list of contributors (yes, I’m in there, but I’m low wattage, eh!).

I’m looking forward to seeing my yarn in print. It was written even earlier, around 2007, I think, as part of a course at Queensland Writers Centre, and it has finally found a home — patience, eh! “Atrocity Exhibition” was inspired in equal measure by a night out at a Goth club and a Joy Division song. This is the way, step inside …
