Just a quick reminder to anyone in the Perth area that Damnation and Dames will be launching at Swancon this Friday. Sadly, I won’t be attending Swancon this year, but if you’re in the Perth area you should really give it a go.

Damnation and Dames is a collection of ‘paranormal noir’ stories from the likes of Lisa L Hannett and Angela Slatter, Rob Hood, Pete Kempshall and many more, including myself, in my first ever fiction collaboration. My story is called Burning, Always Burning and was co-written with the hugely talented Felicity Dowker. The anthology is edited by Liz Grzyb and Amanda Pillar, who’ve got stellar records at this kind of thing, and published by Ticonderoga Publications, so you know it’ll be well worth a look.

Usually you’d have to have forked out for convention tickets to attend, but this year – for the Friday only – a gold coin donation is enough to get you in the door. The launch kicks off at 5.30pm at the Pan Pacific Hotel on Adelaide Terrace in Perth city. I’m not completely sure what the format is, but I imagine there’ll be signings and stuff.

So if you’re at a loose end on Friday, pop along – you won’t be disappointed. Say hello to everyone there from me.
