Australian Dark Fantasy and Horror: Volume Four

The good people at Brimstone Press have just announced the line-up for their forthcoming best-of-the-year anthology Australian Dark Fantasy and Horror Volume Four ... which just happens to include a story by yours truly. The full roster of stories is:

The Last Great House of Isla Tortuga by Peter M. Ball
The Claws of Native Ghosts by Lee Battersby
Pale Dark Soldier by Deborah Biancotti
Heere Be Monsters by John Birmingham
Teeth by Stephen Dedman
Her Collection of Intimacy by Paul Haines
A Guided Tour in the Kingdom of the Dead by Richard Harland
Moments of Dying by Robert Hood
Just Us by Pete Kempshall
Painlessness by Kirstyn McDermott
Smoking, Waiting For the Dawn by Jason Nahrung
The Casting Out by Miranda Siemienowicz

Obviously that's a pretty impressive list of names from the Australian spec fic scene, so I'm pretty excited and flattered to be included. (And on a side note, I'm also pleased to say that four of the eleven other writers on the list - Stephen Dedman, Paul Haines, Robert Hood and Kirstyn McDermott - will be featuring in Scenes From the Second Storey next year. Hurrah!)

ADFH Volume Four book will also include a comprehensive summary of the dark fiction scene Down Under over the past year. It's not out for a couple of months yet, but you can get along to the Brimstone website right now and order a copy ahead of time.
