One day I’d like to put together an anthology of twenty (or a hundred) perfect fantastical tales. “Singing My Sister Down” by Margo Lanagan (Black Juice), will be in there for sure. I reached out to Ms Lanagan a couple years back after staring at this story in the VanderMeer Weird Compendium and just staring at it and thinking how it changed me. I found out we lived in neighboring suburbs of Sydney. And now, here we are, and she’s going to be introducing Aletheia at its Aussie launch. Kind of hard to get my head around how cool it is.
And then a couple days later I shoot down to Melbourne for my very first Continuum, where I’ll be on the some panels and a reading on Sunday morning. Here are my slots.
Saturday 10th June
3pm Secondary Worlds in Weird Fiction
J.S. Breukelaar, Kat Clay, Michelle Goldsmith, Stephanie Lai
4pm Genre Conventions
J.S. Breukelaar, Earl Livings, Jason Franks, Laura E Goodin, Likhain

In September I’ll be appearing at Conflux 13 in Canberra, and later in year at World Fantasy Convention in Austin, TX – more info on those last two as I get it.
Doing everything I can to get my collection edited and off to pub by end June. That’s out in October.
