I had a fantastic couple of days at Oz Comic-Con Xmas Edition in Melbourne with Jason Franks and Alan Baxter on December 10 – 11, 2022 at the Melbourne Showgrounds. We met lots of people, did panels, and sold and signed a bunch of books. Be sure to check out Jason Franks’ new novel X-Dimensional Assassin Zai Through the Unfolded Earth, it’s a blast!
I’m happy to announce that my short story ‘Pest Control’ first published in the original limited edition Cthulhu Deep Down Under anthology that spawned the IFWG Publishing series edited by Steve Proposch, Bryce Stevens and Christopher Sequeira has gone live for free today on The Night’s End podcast for your listening pleasure. My story aside, the podcast is a treasure trove of horror stories, and if that’s your thing, it’s worth having a look/listen and considering becoming a patron or subscriber.
In further translation news, I’m happy to see that my short story “Greater Garbo” – which was recently published in Galaxies Science Fiction in French – has now been translated into Galician (also known as Gallego) and published in the Spanish SF magazine, Nova Fantasia, as “O Grande Garbo”. Nova Fantasia is an online Galician language science fiction site that covers science fiction across various media, similar to io9.
