Aussie Spec Fic Snapshot 2012

Aussie Spec Fic Snapshot 2012Tansy Rayner Roberts interviewed me for the Aussie Spec Fic Snapshot 2012 and the result has just gone live on her blog today. Among other things, I rabbit on about podcasting and my new novel, Perfections, which will come out later this year. The Snapshot is a fantastic project and I’ve really been enjoying the interviews I’ve found time to read so far. I’m looking forward to a huge catch up session after Continuum. There are so many to get through  this year, which I think says quite a bit about the current good health of the spec fic scene here in Australia. It’s certainly very inspiring!

The Aussie Spec Fic Snapshot has taken place three times over the past eight years. In 2005, Ben Peek spent a frantic week interviewing 43 people in the Australian spec fic scene, and it’s only grown since then, now taking a team of interviewers working together to cover the field. In the lead up to Continuum 8 in Melbourne, the following brave souls have been blogging interviews for Snapshot 2012:
