September miscellany

September 22, 2011

The Year’s Best Australian Fantasy & Horror 2010, edited by Talie Helene and Liz Grzyb, has been published by Ticonderoga. It includes my Androphagi story “Schubert by Candlelight,” originally published in Macabre. They also recommend “The Nullarbor Wave”.

The AA judges described The Angælien Apocalypse as “A story with strong foundations in both religious (Christian) and alien abduction mythology, which married the two ideas into a fast, flippant and over-the-top plot.” Which is almost as good as “[it] lost me … towards the end of the story when it turned into a soap opera. The author, whose name I can’t even recall, went way too far with his far from original idea”. I forget myself sometimes, too.

And the Pseudopod commentariat have pegged “In Memoriam” for the by-numbers revenge tale it is. Still, thanks to the mobility of podcasting, for one reader “Target will never be the same”—which is better than, y’know, the loo… They also brought this site to my attention. Now that is some supreme commitment to bad taste.

Now playing: … And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, “Isis Unveiled”
