So this happened …

Memories of Fish from Interzone 270, published by TTA Press, has made the shortlist for the short story section of the Norma K Hemming Awards. I’ll find out the result in June at the Continuum Convention in Melbourne 🙂

The Norma K Hemming Award is “given to mark excellence in the exploration of themes of race, gender, sexuality, class or disability in a speculative fiction work (e.g. science fiction, fantasy, horror) by Australian citizens and/or residents, and first published during the eligibility period.”

Thank you to the judges and convenors. I’m really proud to be on this list with such awesome writers.

I’m also really pleased with how often this little story keeps popping up. Not too shabby for a tale I wrote during two flights and a Melbourne Airport stop-over.

New Milestone – Interzone Magazine

I’m thrilled to announce that my story “Memories of Fish” has just been accepted by the awesome folks at TTA Press and will appear in the next volume of Interzone Magazine. It is a story of virtual reality tourism in a dangerous, climate-change-afflicted future Earth.

I have wanted to publish with Interzone ever since I started writing sci fi, so this is a huge milestone.

I really hope you like the story when it comes out.
