Nice review of The Year’s Best Australian Fantasy & Horror 2010 in Scary Minds

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Scary Minds has put up a lovely review of Ticonderoga PublicationsThe Year’s Best Australian Fantasy & Horror 2010, edited by Liz Grzyb and Talie Helene.  The review is here:

Nine stars out of ten, thank you very much!  And my story “Home”, originally published in Morrigan BooksScenes From the Second Storey, even manages to get a mention:

Martin Livings weighs in with Home, the themes of which are traditional horror, but which for mine never get old or over used. Fingers crossed Livings is working on a new novel, been a while between drinks.

(for the record?  Not hugely seriously, no, but been playing with a few bits and bobs!)

Additionall, as of this morning, Ticon have released the cover of their next Year’s Best, and, unsurprisingly, it’s beautiful.  Can’t wait to see a table of contents for this one!
