YBAF&H versus YMCA

I'm delighted to share a TOC with Angela, and many, many other lovely Aussie writers, in the third YEAR'S BEST AUSTRALIAN FANTASY & HORROR, with yet another glorious cover.  I suspect that, despite her august academic credentials, Angela Slatter may be ever so slightly misguided in stating that you *should* sing YBAF&H to the tune of "YMCA" - it's a bit tricky doing YBA very convincingly in the space that the wonderful Village People just do Y - but I hope that she will show us all how, in the bar at Conflux 9.

Liz Grzyb and Talie Helene have again searched near and far, high and low, for strange, wonderful and terrible Aussie tales:

  • Joanne Anderton, “Tied To The Waste”, Tales Of Talisman

  • R.J.Astruc, “The Cook of Pearl House, A Malay Sailor by the Name of Maurice”, Dark Edifice 2

  • Lee Battersby, “Comfort Ghost”, Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine 56

  • Alan Baxter, “Tiny Lives”, Daily Science Fiction

  • Will Elliot, “Hungry Man”, The Apex Book Of World SF

  • Jason Fischer, “Pigroot Flat”, Midnight Echo 8

  • Dirk Flinthart, “The Bull In Winter”, Bloodstones

  • Lisa L. Hannett, “Sweet Subtleties”, Clarkesworld

  • Lisa L. Hannett & Angela Slatter, “Bella Beaufort Goes To War”, Midnight And Moonshine

  • Narrelle Harris, “Stalemate”, Showtime

  • Kathleen Jennings, “Kindling”, Light Touch Paper, Stand Clear

  • Gary Kemble, “Saturday Night at the Milkbar”, Midnight Echo 7

  • Karen Maric, “Anvil Of The Sun”, Aurealis

  • Faith Mudge, “Oracle's Tower”, To Spin A Darker Stair

  • Kyla Ward, “The Loquacious Cadaver”, The Lion And The Aardvark: Aesop's Modern Fables
