My short story, Phoenix Pharmaceuticals, about a magical cure too good to be true, is now available as an ebook in the Cancer anthology, book seven of Aussie Speculative Fiction’s Zodiac Series. This series is full of dark and mysterious stories inspired by zodiac signs and mythology. The Cancer installment will be available in paperback soon . Aussie Speculative Fiction is a fantastic group full of creative people committed to showcasing some of the amazing speculative fiction produced in Australia and by Australians. It’s well worth checking out their other projects too, and it was a pleasure to be included in this.
One of my short stories has been accepted for an anthology in the Zodiac Series by Australian Speculative Fiction. Each anthology in this series is filled with stories inspired by one of the star signs and it’s symbology. The first Zodiac books are available now in print or ebook from aussiespeculativefiction.com.
I should have posted about this earlier, but the fires had me fleeing my beautiful bush home and my writing routine. I was devoured by worry for friends and family as they faced the fury. While everyone I know came through things okay, our community will never be quite the same, with the bushfires destroying hundreds of homes in my area.
My good news from December, before everything went wild, was that my short story, “The Clockwork Baby” was selected as the feature story in the debut issue of Endless Stars Magazine. This is a new endeavour, created and edited by my extremely talented friend Joel Schanke. The idea is to produce a speculative fiction magazine combined with a platform for agents and editors to approach authors whose work they love.
If you visit the Endless Stars website, you’ll be able to download the complimentary first issue and escape into some gorgeous fiction. If you’re a writer, take note: submissions for issue two will be opening soon.
