I’m really chuffed – I have a new story out in this month’s Aurealis! It’s called ‘Anvil of the Sun’ (thanks to Nathan Burrage for the title suggestion), and I must admit that even though I do have a bit of a penchant for dark fantasy, this was a really harrowing story to write. But I am very proud of the final version. Also, Andrew Saltmarsh has done a great job with the cover illustration. The starkness of his image captures the mood of the story perfectly.

Anyway, you can buy Aurealis #54 by clicking here.

    Great news – is this the story we workshopped ages ago, about the mother-to-be in a dreadful predicament? If so, I really enjoyed it – cheers B

    Hi Brian! Yep, it is that story… Thanks for your feedback about it at Thorby’s. I’m really glad you liked this story 🙂 I’m kind of attached to it myself.

  5. Hey sorry I’m so late getting to this, but thanks so much for your kind words on the illustration. I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂

    It’s great when I get to hear feedback from the authors of the works I illustrate for Aurealis!
