About Me

My photo
I am a writer, editor, reviewer and dance teacher based in Perth, Western Australia.

My books

The first two novels of my trilogy, The Talismans, are not available as e-books at present, but I expect to get them back online shortly. However, I do have paperbacks of The Dagger of Dresnia at the low price of $25 including postage within Australia. I also have a short story, 'La Belle Dame', in print - see Mythic Resonance below. The best way to contact me is via Facebook!

Buy The Talismans

The first two books of The Talismans trilogy were published by Satalyte Publications, which, sadly, has gone out of business. I hope to see my books back on Amazon under a new publisher in the near future.

Yet another reading list revisited

The book list from the Guardian has, of course, been turned into a meme:-) I will not plague you with it, but if you do want to copy it, go to Stephen Dedman's LJ and snaffle it from there. It's much easier to read (although less interesting and educational!) as a straight list than as a catalogue of synopses and I found a few favourites that I'd thought were missing. So I stand corrected in regard to my reply to Juliet's comment: Ursula K. Le Guin's Left Hand of Darkness and Octavia Butler's Kindred are, in fact, on the list. My faith in the Guardian is restored!

Last night was, of course, the annual presentation of the Aurealis Awards. There were some surprises, but I'd especially like to congratulate Adrian Bedford for his win in the Science Fiction section with his novel Time Machines Repaired by Request. Adrian's books aren't nearly as popular as they should be because he is published in Canada, which means his books can only be found here in his homeland in small, specialist stores. But if you like hard SF you will want to hunt them down.

If you'd like to read the full list of winners, go to The Specusphere. You'll find it under "News" in the top right hand corner. Thanks to Lee Battersby for getting the list up before anyone else so that I could pinch it!

Thanks for telling me about an author I have never heard of, Adrian Bedford, I will check him out.

Jo said...

Having double checked, you say Bedford is published in Canada? Are you sure?

Satima --

Thanks for this, I checked The Specusphere site and I blush to admit that I've not read any of the authors. Time I get my education checked!

Well, they're all Aussie authors, Marilyn, and some of them are real newbies to boot, so it's unlikely you would have heard of them. Jo, Adrian (K.A. Bedford) is indeed pubished by Edge, a small press outfit in Calgary, so his book should be available and might even be in the library sytem.

Not in my local library, I checked. Maybe I should ask them about it. Not maybe, I will ask them.
