About My Library
I started by uploading a selection of books from my library, reflecting my three main areas of reading: science fiction and fantasy, literary fiction (especially Russian and Spanish-language fiction in translation), and poetry - especially New Zealand poetry and European and South American poetry in translation. I've also got a bunch of cricket books, books about Antarctica, and science fiction fanzines. Most of the books listed, I own; books I don't own are tagged with the name of the library from which I borrowed them.
About Me

I'm an author as well as a reader. Here's how to find my own books, and some recent anthologies with my work in them:

Books


Where We Land is my climate fiction (cli-fi) novella from The Cuba Press, published in July 2019. An earlier version of this novella, Landfall, is available from Amazon.com as a Kindle ebook.


My latest full-length poetry collection is New Sea Land: poems about climate change, sea level rise, and the way the sea and the land interact with each and with us.


The Stars Like Sand: Australian Speculative Poetry is an anthology of Australian speculative poetry (you guessed that, right?) - science fiction, fantasy, horror, magic realism, surrealism - co-edited by P.S. Cottier and I and available in so many formats you'll scarcely notice the lack of a T-shirt edition. 


The Stars Like Sand includes poetry from the 19th century to the present, and the poets involved include such well-known names as Dorothy Porter, Samuel Wagan Watson, Les Murray, Judith Beveridge, Diane Fahey, John Tranter, Peter Minter, Jan Owen, and many, many more.






Don't let the grass grow under your feet on your way to buy this book - walk smartly off the grass, and then it will be able to grow more freely.
