Here’s some good news on the publishing front. Well, good news for me and hopefully for you too, if you enjoy reading my stuff. Firstly, my short story, Dream Shadow, has been accepted for publication in the next CSFG Publishing anthology, Winds Of Change, edited by Elizabeth Fitzgerald. The book will be launched at Conflux on Friday, 30 September 2011 in Canberra. I’ll be there, as will a number of the contributing authors, so another good readon to get to that Con if you can.

Here’s the book’s blurb, from the press release:

From the first roiling dust clouds, Winds of Change draws the reader in with tales of darkness and horror, of wonder and hope. Twenty four authors demonstrate the vitality and diversity of the current Australian speculative fiction scene. Editor Elizabeth Fitzgerald has put together a thought-provoking anthology that you’ll want to read in a single sitting, but which will also reward a second, more leisurely visit.

Here’s the full Table of Contents:

Looks like it’s shaping up to be a great book, so keep an eye out for that one. I’ll drop another reminder here when it’s available for people unable to get to the launch.

And in other short fiction news, The Game anthology, from Seven Realms Publishing, is available now in a variety of formats. You can find the Kindle version at Amazon, print and Nook at B&N and all the other good stuff to come.

I’ve mentioned this anthology before here, and you’ll find my short story, Running Wild From The Hunt, in there. This one is a great concept antho, so I’m looking forward to reading the other contributions. It’s got a stellar selection of authors on board, so have a search for that one.
