In some rather exciting news, I have been commissioned to write an essay about my interest in horror from a political and cultural perspective.
The monograph will be out late 2017, and it’s called The Body Horror Book, edited by Claire Fitzpatrick.
I’ve wanted to write about this topic for some time, so it will be interesting to see what horrors emerge.
‘Haunting Matilda’, the story published in Cthulhu: Deep Down Under, is shortlisted for the Aurealis Awards in the Best Fantasy Novella category.
To me it’s a horror short story. But hey, I’m not complaining.
Winners are announced 26 March, so tentacles crossed.
I’m facilitating 2 writers’ groups from February to September 2016.
