Props! Silly Girl!

Last time, it took me a month to notice a kudos on one of my few short stories in recent publication. Because, I'm not paying attention that's just how I roll.

This time, it took me ten months to notice.

Because, I'm really not paying attention I roll far, I roll fast.

Regarding story selection for the Year's Best Australian Science Fiction & Fantasy Vol. 4, a mention of Daikaiju 3, which contained One Night On Tidal Rig #13, which I'll quote here so I can come back and read it when I've run out of marshmallows, ice cream, clean undies, etc etc etc.

The small press anthologies published in 2007 all have much to recommend them. Daikaiju! 2: Revenge of the Giant Monsters, and Daikaiju! 3: Giant Monsters vs the World, are sequels to 2005's Daikaiju!: Giant Monster Tales. As with the first volume, both new volumes were edited by Robert Hood and Robin Pen, and published by Agog! Press. These were the quirky, fun books of the year, with stories pitting giant monsters, both supernatural and other worldly, against society. The strongest stories by Tessa Kum and Chris McMahon were unfortunately both too long to reprint here. Both volumes are recommended.

"...too long..."


Lovely to discover, though. That's the only mention I've seen of the story anywhere, and as far as mentions go, it's neat-o.


  1. Umm, you write Sci-Fi and you've gotten props for "Best"?

    Let's celebrate! That's awesome!

  2. ...I think I had a drink that night? I could be wrong. Well, nevermind. I'm having a drink tonight just in case I didn't have a drink that night. I am a bad celebrator.
