If God had meant us to slay dragons, She wouldn’t have made us so flammable

14 09 2010

Not, perhaps, a particularly pertinent heading, but the point needed to be made.

By way of updating this sporadically-tended site, I also offer the following observations:

1. Worldcon 2010 (Aussiecon 4) has been and gone. I was there.

2. Au Contraire (the NZ Natcon for this year) has also been and gone. I wasn’t there, but I won an award. The Sir Julius Vogel award, for Best New Talent. Somehow. It’s an awesome trophy, and I shall defend it with my life.

3. ASIM 46, Aurealis 44, and the A Foreign Country anthology are all now out, and they are individually and collectively awesome. (I happen to have a contribution in each of them, but that is entirely another matter.)

4. I have sighted two further reviews of Rare Unsigned Copy, both positive, and am impatient to quote therefrom, but must exercise restraint until they have officially appeared in their appointed outlets.

5. As a probably misguided response to the 2010 New Zealand Spec Fic Blogging Week, I have taken it upon myself to publish, on this very web, short pieces of fiction on each of the seven days that comprise the Week. A running list of these pieces can be found on the ‘Online Fiction‘ page.

6. August has also been and gone. I was busy. See (1) above.
