New Release: Path of Night by Dirk Flinthart

October 29th, 2013 at 2:22 pm (Competitions, Path of Night)

We quietly snuck this one out in ebook last week, but with the print version finally showing up at Amazon (and other retailers to follow soon – ask for it at your local bookstore!), we would like to formally welcome to the world Path of Night by Dirk Flinthart!

PathofNightCoverMichael Devlin is the first of a new breed. The way things are going, he may also be the last.

Being infected with an unknown disease is bad. Waking up on a slab in a morgue wearing nothing but a toe-tag is worse, even if it comes with a strange array of new abilities.

Medical student Michael Devlin is in trouble. With his flatmates murdered and an international cabal of legendary man-monsters on his trail, Devlin’s got nowhere to hide. His only allies are a hot-tempered Sydney cop and a mysterious monster-hunter who may be setting Devlin up for the kill. If he’s going to survive, Devlin will have to embrace his new powers and confront his hunters. But can he hold onto his humanity when he walks the Path of Night?

Path of Night is the first of the Night Beast series – we anticipate book 2 will see release in mid-2014.

The first reviews are already starting to come in, with this lovely gem on Amazon:

…action driven, laced with humor…I am hoping that there will be a sequel. –Roger Ross

Book Giveaway Competition: Stories, edited by Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio

July 6th, 2010 at 1:01 am (Australis Imaginarium, Books, Competitions)

Last week I received the advance print copies of Worlds Next Door (and it looks beautiful!). This week, I finalised the lineup for Australis Imaginarium and am delighted to announce it!

“Once a Month, on a Sunday” by Ian McHugh
“Night Heron’s Curse” by Thoraiya Dyer
“Hunter of Darkness, Hunter of Light” by Michael Pryor
“A Pig’s Whisper” by Margo Lanagan
“Stealing Free” by Deborah Biancotti
“Suffer the Little Children” by  Rowena Cory Daniells
“Virgin Jackson” by Marianne de Pierres
“The Claws of Native Ghosts” by Lee Battersby
“The Jacaranda Wife” by Angela Slatter
“The Dark Under the Skin” by Dirk Strasser
“Red Ochre” by Lucy Sussex
“Passing the Bone” by Sean Williams

I’m sure you’ll agree it’s an intriguing and totally awesome lineup :)

To celebrate Australis Imaginarium being (almost) ready to go to print, we’re giving away another book!

This time, it’s an original anthology of imaginative short fiction edited by bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio – Stories is pretty to look at and packed with awesome authors and their work.

Publisher’s Weekly says: “This collection of 27 never-before published stories from an impressive cast — Roddy Doyle, Joyce Carol Oates, and Stuart O’Nan, among others — sets out to shift genre paradigms. The overarching theme is fantastic fiction, or fiction of the imagination, with fantasy being used in the most broad-sweeping sense rather than signaling the familiar commercial staples of elves, ghouls, and robots.”

Interested? Want a chance to win? Here’s how! We’re celebrating Australian stories in Australis Imaginarium, so in the comments here, simply tell me your favourite Australian novel or short story (or both!) and why you love it. It doesn’t have to be speculative fiction, simply Australian in some way. And yes, it is somewhat ironic that I’m celebrating Australian fiction with the reward of a non-Australian book – I can if I wanna! :)

Open to all (happy to post internationally if needs be), winner to be chosen at random from eligible entries. Entries close Sunday July 18, 2010.
