Thanks for dropping by, he says optimistically. A little about me:
I live in Brisbane, Australia, with my wife Diana.
I used to be fiction editor of Redsine, and I am a member of the crit. group ROR. The other members are Maxine McArthur, Marianne De Pierres, Cory Daniels, Tansy Rainer Roberts, Richard Harland, and Margo Lanagan.
We meet once a year, tear each others manuscripts to shreds, drink copious amounts of alcohol, then return to our respective corners of the continent, to lick our wounds, sober up, and get ready for the next year. Which is how I got the glass eye - though you'd never know looking at me, the surgeons did a great job. Pity they couldn't save my spleen - thanks a lot, McArthur.
My first book, "Reserved for Travelling Shows" is coming out through Prime in the next few weeks. If I sell a few copies I'll be able to pay for one of the many operations I need to get me ready for the next ROR meeting.
I've a webpage at
It does need updating, there's a new story coming up in Aurealis and one on the Shadowed Realms webpage, but ever since Lanagan cracked my skull open with a hardcover copy of "The Essential Ellison" I get woozy if I sit at the computer too long.
Thanks to Jeff Vandermeer for setting this up, and, of course, NS.

And proud to have published a story by you in NEMONYMOUS FOUR.
All the best with this board,

I was proud to be published in Nemonymous. Even cocky. Diana wouldn't stand for such big-headedness, though. Which is how I lost my ear.

Welcome, Trent. Very much looking forward to the collection!

Good to see you here, Trent. I loved your story, "Anabiosis". "Reserved for Travelling Shows" with great interest.

hey trent. you've got boardness too

Thanks Jeff and Anna. I hope you like it - well, at least bits of it.
Hey Ben. Boardness is good.

Anabiosis was a fantastic story, and I was very pleased to be able to buy it when it came to me. On the other hand, I've made no secret of being a Jamieson fan. Hell, I even paid someone for his spleen...

Howdy...I've been reading Trent Jamieson stories for about seven years now... but I've been clean for about six weeks...

Well I better start writing some more. There's a clean reading room in the city, where you can get the right sort of medical attention. Geez I still find it peculiar to think that anyone reads my stories, or would pay (and seriously outbid me)for my spleen on ebay.
It was Tansy that sold it to you, wasn't it, Lee?

Re the wooziness - I was just trying to BREAK UP the Ellison, for firewood, at Varuna. You don't remember, because of the injury, but you actually volunteered your head for the purpose.

You should know better than to break up heavy objects on Trent's head, Margot. It's his *groin* that you want to aim for with something as heavy as the Ellison collection. It doesn't break any easier, but he turns so many more interesting shades of scream
Tansy didn't sell me your spleen, Trent. Just your soul.
