Just saw that some US bookdealer is selling The Year’s Best Australian Science Fiction and Fantasy: Volume 1 for $US 111.70. I’m proud of the book, but you’d have to be insane to buy it for that. Especially since you can get it here for $A24.95. Even with postage and handling, you’d be in front.
Just read Greg Benford’s new story, The First Commandment, over at Sci Fiction. It’s basically “The Nine Billion Names of God” retold, this time naming all the beasts and the world ends, as opposed to counting all the names of god. It’s ok, but not as special and weird as Christopher Rowe’s very cool The Volountary State.
