Okay, I’m behind on all sorts of communication. In news:
Many thank-yous to the peoople who nominated aBoE and Six Suicides. Thank-you, thank-you. DITMAR winners will be announced September 3 at Aussiecon, the 68th World SF Convention, this year in Melbourne.
‘Hush’ sells to the YEAR’S BEST AUSTRALIAN FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION!
‘Diamond Shell’ page proofs are in for the Prime YEAR’S BEST DARK FANTASY AND HORROR!
Gilgamesh’s Ishtar novella anthology has been pushed back in the publications line-up (awww!), with my story ‘And the Dead Shall Outnumber the Living’ (working title).
(No exclamation mark for that one.)
As of end-November, my day-job contract is DONE! At which point the money and the time-for-writing will switch places, and I’ll be hoarding my coins while addressing some unfinished projects (the novel will hopefully be with an alpha reader by then).
All in all, 2010, what a year, eh? More of the same, thanks! (Exclamation mark.)
