I never notice these things when they actually happen. Only later. Much later.
At any rate, here are a few small mentions that made me happy.
Shane Jiraiya Cummings’ annual Dark Fiction Writers to Watch list. It would be nice to achieve things in 2009 *twitches* 2008 felt almost like a waste. It wasn’t. Achievements were made, but they were mostly behind the scenes achievements or not-quite but painfully-close ones. I gave 2009 a good talking on NYE, hopefully it will listen!
The Introduction from The Year’s Best Australian SF & Fantasy: Fourth Annual Volume has a nice ASIM mention, and this:
Zombies, edited by Robert N. Stephenson and published by Altair Australia Books, collects original zombie stories from around the world. Highlights are by Joanne Anderton and the editor, Robert N. Stephenson.
K, caught up now. Give me a few months to get behind again
