Midnight Echo is ramping up to the release of Issue 8 at the end of November — herewith, some dirt on my yarn in the magazine, ‘Hello Kitty’. It includes an extract, which makes me stress that the attitudes and opinions of characters therein are not necessarily those of the author …
Other writers in the mag include Joe R Lonsdale, Felicity Dowker, Joanne Anderton, Jason Fischer and Andrew J McKiernan — and MORE!
And Issue 9, with a theme of legends, is open to submissions.
Very pleased to say that Aurealis #47
is available for download, for $2.99, at Smashwords
. It features a Greek mythology story from Jenny Blackford and my Aussie dark fantasy, ‘Breaking the Wire’, plus loads of other tasty tidbits such as punchy reviews and links to recent happenings in spec fic. The download is free for subscribers.
It’s also worth noting that Aurealis is once again open to submissions. It publishes 10 issues a year in the newly adopted digital format.
It’s official enough to shout about … check out this spooky little book cover! Devil Dolls and Duplicates in Australian Horror — a collection of short stories about, um, devilish dolls and doppelgangers of all makes put together by Anthony Ferguson — is due out in February through Equilibrium Books (who are taking pre-orders).
