Is everyone out there still sick of pirate stories? I've got one, which I actually dig, but if everyone is still saturated with them, I'll sit on it for a year or so and see what happens then. If you're not sick of it, let me know.
In other writing related news, Bill Congreve and Michelle Marquardt have picked up 'The Souls of Dead Soldiers are for Blackbirds, Not Little Boys' for the 2007 edition of The Year's Best Australian Science Fiction and Fantasy. The story was first published in Agog! Ripping Reads, edited by Cat Sparks (catsparx). S'all cool, as they say.
