Story sold!

January 2, 2013

Really stoked to announce that my short SF story “Those Days” has been picked up for publication.

The Canberra Speculative Fiction Guild (CSFG) will be including it in their next anthology – the theme of which will be ‘next’:

Next suggests ‘change’, perhaps, but it doesn’t have to invoke change, it can simply be an account of cause-and-effect.  Soemtimes it’s the absence of change, the sense of inevitability, that gives the story its terrible power and its resonance.  Or it might be a rite-of-passage; of invention and exploration; of the testing and transgression of boundaries; or a story laden with doom or hope or just the inevitability of inescapable repetition.  Yup, this theme is a theme for all seasons; it’s a cut and come again theme that can mean pretty much whatever people want it to mean.

Check out the excellent TOC here. Previous anthologies from CSFG have been filled with some excellent names and this one is no different. Some of the names I recognise include:

Alan Baxter

Richard Harland

Martin Livings

Ian McHugh

Gillian Polack

 

I’m looking forward to discovering everyone else on the TOC too!
