Coming Soon ...
People who are better organised and more motivated than me have been moving other things along, however, so here's some news of forthcoming attractions.
As you can see, Close Encounters of the Urban Kind from Apex Publications now has a cover. The book itself is out in a few months, and pre-order information will be available soon.
Meanwhile Alisa at Twelfth Planet Press has just released a table of contents for her upcoming anthology Sprawl (the commission I landed earlier this month). It's not a final list, apparently, but so far the details are:
Liz Argall - Seed Dreams (comic)
Peter Ball - One Saturday Night, With Angel
Deborah Biancotti - Never Going Home
Simon Brown - Sweep
Stephanie Campisi - How to Select a Durian at Footscray Market
Thoraiya Dyer - Yowie
Dirk Flinthart - Walker
Lisa Hannett - Weightless
Pete Kempshall - Signature Walk
Ben Peek - White Crocodile Jazz
Tansy Rayner Roberts - Relentless Adaptations
Barbara Robson - Neighbourhood Watch
Angela Slatter - Brisneyland by Night
Cat Sparks - All For Love
Anna Tambour - Gnawer of the Moon Seeks Summit of Paradise
Kaaron Warren - Loss
Sean Williams - Parched (poem)
Looks like it'll be a good one ...
