So, as is being reported far and wide, the 2009 Ditmar nominations have been announced. Huge congrats to all the worthy nominees, especially those on my f-list, of which there are a heap. As for me (hey, it's my blog!), well, I've never really been able to crack the Ditmars, but at least this year I can take vicarious pleasure from being in three of the collections nominated for "Best Collected Work", plus being the ex-mentor of one of the "Best Fan Writer" nominees. Hey, you take what you can get! ;)

  • "There Was Darkness", as reprinted in Australian Dark Fantasy and Horror Volume 3, has been reviewed in Scary Minds.

    Martin Livings offered a sort of postscript to John Wyndham's The Day of the Triffids that reads like a fantasy till it really hit the horror sizzle in the final paragraphs. I've still got a chill going down my spine over that one.

    Always nice to get feedback like this. :)

    Whoa, while I was there, I also spotted a wonderfully positive review of Carnies that had previously escaped my atention:

    If you miss out on this novel you will be howling at the moon in frustration. Run, don't walk, to get a copy right now!

    Wow... just... wow...
