The latest list of recommended reading from Locus Online has been announced. You know I’ve been rattling on for months about Paul Haine’s awesome novella, “Wives”. Well, that’s on there, as is Margo Lanagan’s novella, “Sea Hearts”, from the same anthology. And, in fact, the “X6” Novellanthology itself is listed. So yeah, you really need to read that book if you haven’t.
Other Aussies listed are Peter M Ball for his novella, “Horn”, and Deb Biancotti for her collection, “A Book Of Endings”, both released by the phenomenon that is Twelfth Planet Press. Jack Dann & Gardner Dozois get a nod as editors of “The Dragon Book” anthology. Garth Nix is mentioned for “The Heart of the City” novellette, Peter M Ball is mentioned again for “On the Destruction of Copenhagen by the War-Machines of the Merfolk” in the short story list and two more mentions in short stories for Margo Lanagan with “Ferryman” and “Living Curiosities”. What a brilliant result.
I’m sure I missed some Aussies, so apologies in advance if I did! It’s a great list. See the whole thing here.
