About me

I'm an author as well as a reader. Here's how to find my own books, and some recent anthologies with my work in them:


  • My latest book, published in 2014, is The Stars Like Sand: Australian Speculative Poetry, an anthology I co-edited with P.S. Cottier. It's full of science fiction, fantasy and horror poems from the 19th century to the present day by Australian authors, including such well-known poets as Les Murray, Dorothy Porter, David Ades, Diane Fahey, and A.B. 'Banjo' Paterson.

    You can buy The Stars Like Sand from as a paperback or Kindle e-book, or buy it directly from the publisher at the The Stars Like Sand mini-site.

  • You can buy my 2011 poetry collection Men Briefly Explained from in Kindle or paperback format. It's also available in a range of formats from eBookpie and for the Kobo.

  • My short story collection Transported, which was longlisted for the 2008 Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award, is available for the Kindle.

  • Voyagers: Science Fiction Poetry from New Zealand, an anthology I co-edited with Mark Pirie, won the 2010 Sir Julius Vogel Award for Best Collected Work. You can buy Voyagers from as a paperback or Kindle e-book, or buy it directly from the publisher at the Voyagers mini-site.

You can find details of all these books at my author page.

Recent Anthologies

About my libraryI started by uploading a selection of books from my library, reflecting my three main areas of reading: science fiction and fantasy, literary fiction (especially Russian and Spanish-language fiction in translation), and poetry - especially New Zealand poetry and European and South American poetry in translation. I've also got a bunch of cricket books, books about Antarctica, and science fiction fanzines. Most of the books listed, I own; books I don't own are tagged with the name of the library from which I borrowed them. Books I've written are tagged but not rated.
