At the upcoming World Fantasy Convention – to be held in Madison, Wisconsin (3-6 November) – Garth Nix and I will be holding a party and doing what we can to promote Australian science fiction and fantasy to the readers, writers, editors and publishers assembled there.
With that in mind, we’ve decided to assemble a catalog of Australian science fiction and fantasy to be published in the coming year (i.e. between Oct 05 and Oct 06). It is our intention that each book/author shall receive its own page, and shall do so free of charge.
So, if you are an editor, writer or publisher, all you need to do is email the following information to me at jstrahan (at) iinet (dot) net (dot) au:
Blurb (inc. quotes, advance review extracts etc.):
Jacket Pic: a 150 dpi image in jpeg format
Extent (no. pages):
Publisher(s) and Territories:
Agent or rights holder contacts:
All this information must be received no later than September 24.
We will then assemble the catalog and get it out to the world. Because we’d like to do this as a service, and would like it to be as complete as possible, feel free to circulate this request to your editors, publishers, friends. Anyone who would want to be involved and is being published during the time in question.
We intend to be generous in who and what we allow into the book, so if you have any questions, email us and we’ll let you know.
