It’s an exciting day to be a Kiwi speculative fiction writer, with the line-up announced for Regeneration: New Zealand Speculative Fiction II, from Random Static Press, and it is a veritable who’s who of NZ spec fic writing today.
I am extremely pleased and excited to be included in the TOC, with my slightly dark and twisted tale of rural horror, Mother’s Milk. It’s great to be a part of this book, and to see my name there alongside people with whom I have worked and collaborated on projects over the past couple of years, and some of whom I’ve known for many years. Other contributing authors include Grant Stone, Jonathan James Todd, Cassie Hart, Anna Caro, Matt Cowens, Debbie Cowens, Tim Jones and many more.
While a lot of what I’ve been doing over the last couple of years in terms of getting short fiction out into the market has pretty much been me making myself and my work known to strangers, it’s nice that on this book I can feel like part of a community, with people I personally know and who I’ve sat down and had a beer with in times gone by, or plan to in the weeks to come.
Regeneration wil be launched later this year at the Au Contraire convention in Wellington (July 12-14, 2013). Keep an eye out for pre-order information.
