Look what I found at the beach…

February 6, 2014


This is a small version of the cover for The Stars Like Sand: Australian Speculative Poetry (Interactive Publications), which should be out in late April. Click for a better look.

Not a bad piece of flotsam. Or is that jetsam? No, they were the cartoon characters who lived in a perfect American future, weren’t they? With nifty jetpacks?

When all this egregious specpo is over, I am going to read a novel of such staunch realism that you wouldn’t read about it. With a plot so heavy it would drown you, if you read it on a lilo floating on a pool.

Unless, of course, it was a hover-lilo. Now there’s the ultimate personal transport device. I sneer at your pathetic jet-packs, American cartoon people.

  1. Stars like sand – sea like glass. Nice!

  2. PS Hover-lilo? Ingenious.

    I love your humour, and look forward to the book. I’d love to read about the novel that you read; but please invent the hover lilo – why hasn’t it been done already!

    Mmm, perhaps holo is the right word, but I’m sure that means something rude…

    Cheers, Norah!
