Australian Speculative Fiction is alive and well!
For the past couple of weeks, the Australian SpecFic Snapshot Project has been on a mission – to profile as many speculative fiction authors as they can and get them seen by readers across the world.
A small group of volunteers (including myself) have tracked down authors from all around the country to pick their brains on what it means to be a speculative fiction author, and of course, ask the important questions about their next spellbinding story. The project first appeared way back in 2005, and it’s great to see it still going.
I had the privilege of interviewing several authors – Matthew Tait, Daniel I. Russell, Aaron Sterns, Brett McBean, and Zena Shapter, and also provide a memorial post on Rocky Wood. I was also interviewed by Matthew Summers. But there are so many more incredible authors out there.
To read all the interviews (so far) head over to the website: www.austsfsnapshot.wordpress.com
Congrats to everyone who volunteered their time to make this all happen. We authors need all the support we can get!
