Look what arrived in the post for me!

Stories by some splendid writers including me:

Furthest Tales of the City contents

I haven't read it yet as it only arrived yesterday, but am greatly looking forward to it. Some of the titles look especially interesting, but I may have to start with Helen Angove's story.

(Buy it here from the publishers, Obverse Books, in paperback or ebook form.)

Iris Wildthyme of Mars

The author list for "Iris Wildthyme of Mars" (ed Philip Purser-Hallard), due out this summer from Obverse Books, was announced this week, and I am on it!

Iris is a splendid character to write, and I enjoyed putting the story together. (Writing for me often feels like that; like locking pieces of idea into one another to create a finished structure. I may be influenced in this notion by time recently spent with Duplo blocks.) It even has a permaculture genesis...

I'm looking forward to reading the other stories (I've already read a first draft of one of them, and it was great; and I'm familiar with previous work from several of the other authors), and to the book coming out. Watch this space, and so on.
