Shane backs the new blood

Horrorscope editor and Ditmar-award winning author Shane Jiraiya Cummings is the guest host of the ASIF! forum this fortnight and was kind enough to mention me when talking about the future of Australian horror.

In a discussion on the state of Aussie horror, Shane mentioned myself along with other up and comers
Susan Wardle, Steven Cavanagh, Mark Barnes, Liam Rands, Chris Elston, Stephanie Campisi, and Miranda Siemienowicz as the new wave of authors pushing through.

It's great to see Shane peddling a few new names to people in his support of the genre. Thank you Shane!

That's a great compliment, Mark, and isn't it brilliant when someone notices what you're doing and accords it genuine worth?

It certainly helps you to keep plugging along. And thanks for dropping by the site. I wasn't sure if anyone was actually going to this page!

I felt the same, Mark. Keep it up.
Go our new wave!
