Tentacle Mind Report

Congratulations to my friend and fellow Clarionite, Stefani Nellen for her story in Conjunctions. Tentacle Mind Report was workshopped at Clarion, and was among my favourite stories so I am very happy to be able to read it again. And now you can too!

Limited Edition Damo

Right people. John Klima, editor at Electric Velocipede has recently become a father for the second time (congratulations!), but unfortunately now also finds himself the sole earner in his household.

But to every cloud is a silver lining, because John  has decided to sell off all remaining stock of Electric Velocpede #13 (among other things) which features my short story Momentum. Yes, thats right! You, dear reader, now have the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of perhaps the most exciting literary opportunity since….well….since the last time I got you to buy Electric Velocipede!

Damo and the Sofanauts

I’ve been a massive podcast fan since I bought my first iPod. I’ve always been a sci-fi fan, but podcasts like Escape Pod, I Should Be Writing and The Dragon Page introduced me to a whole new world of SF. I’ve been listening to Starship Sofa since the early days, so today I was really proud to take part in the first of a new show from the Starship Sofa team, The Sofanauts.

Anyone who has listened to The Week In Tech will be familiar with the format of The Sofanauts, which aims to be The Week in Sci-Fi. A gang of SF fans, bloggers and writers meet every week to talk about SF in all it’s glory!

I’ve just finished recording the first episode and REALLY enjoyed it. I joined host Tony C Smith, Escape Pod editor Jeremiah Tolbert and Matthew Sanborn Smith.

Go listen!

Husbandry by EJ Fischer @ Strange Horizons

If you only read one work of speculative fiction today, make sure it is Husbandry by E J Fischer (if you read two, read Husbandry twice). Its a wicked zombie story with more than a little to say about the state of modern realationships. Strange Horizons have once again displayed the presence of mind to recognise the good work of a Clarion ’08 grad (they displayed genuine sci-fi skills by publishing Dan Pinney before he even went to Clarion!) So, go read! Whats stopping you?!
