Horroscope, the Australian Dark Fiction information website, have just posted an interview they conducted with me a month or so ago. Check it out at http://www.ozhorrorscope.blogspot.com/

You've done it this time! "I want their brain to change shape," you admitted in this interview. So now I've got grounds to sue. I wondered why after reading your latest story, my brain twisted itself into a figure eight.

If you put your hair up into a bun it should hide any unusual cranial configurations :-)

I put my hair in a bun once, but it tasted better in a sandwich. (We'll, it is New Year's day in Brisbane.)

Okay, I read the interview. It was good honest stuff. I liked the bit about the marketing angle, but I always feel that as short story writers it's all in the hands of what the editors can do with their magazines and anthologies. The readership for most places we get published, Lee, is just so small. Shit, it's small even in Australian terms. I sometimes think that short stories are a dying art, but in this age of people being time-starved you would think they'd be thriving.

Try toasting it. Although toasted hair is welsh rabbit. And nobody wants that much cheese in their hare. Where are my pills?

In the bottom drawer of your desk. Toasted hare is welsh rarebit? I prefer your hare in a bun. I think I finally got the double-joke in that old Monty Python skit.

Hopefully the Yankees have finally hit 2006 by now. It must be strange living on the other side of the international dateline. I flew to the US once and arrived before I left, and people think time travel stories are hard to write. Weird.

Okay the board's telling me, when I edit, that we've hit 12.11 am in the US. Happy New Year to everyone.

Lee, it's been fun. See you on the night of the AAs. The kids are waiting:-)

Looking forward to catching up, Geoff. Most of my favourite OzSF people are in Brisbane, and an awful lot more turn up on AA night.
