And so, that would be me, there, having sold a story to Cat Sparks for the next Agog. It's called 'The Souls of Dead Soldiers are for Blackbirds, Not Little Boys'.

As titles go, it's one of my favourites. It's rather shocking that I can have a story that is actually about all those things, in fact. The collection is going to be released at Conflux, which is in June, so there won't be much of a wait for this. I won't be at the launch, but what's shocking about that? For those of you overseas, Prime Books will be releasing an edition in the States, so you'll all be able to pick up a copy. For I know you will want one.

(Prime will also be releasing the previous volumes.)

That isn't the cover, by the by, but rather a mock cover. But who doesn't like a bit of an image up there?

Lastly, J from Galaxy Bookstore, has just written to let me know that you can get copies of the Year's Best Australian Science Fiction and Fantasy, 2006, from Galaxy. Copies in store. Go and get yourself some mail.

I remain, as ever, your Pimp Master (tm).
