ToC Reveal: Oz is Burning

While the Branch and Root anthology has been delayed for various reasons, other anthologies are still being produced and I’m absolutely delighted to announce that I have a story in another new anthology: Oz is Burning.

I don’t have a cover to reveal for it yet, but I can reveal the table of contents. It’s always flattering and marvellous to appear alongside writers I admire!

Oz Is Burning is being published by B Cubed Press. The book of apocalyptic fiction was conceived as a response to February’s terrible bushfires (how long ago they seem now!) and the publisher’s share of the profits will be donated to a relevant charity.

More news to come when the cover is ready to share and the publication date known. (The book was originally to have been available for New Zealand’s August 2020 Worldcon, which is now an online event. )
