Birth Rights

I got notice a couple of days ago that my short story ‘Birth Rights’ is going to be included in the upcoming anthology ‘A Foreign Country: New Zealand Speculative Fiction’, which is due for release in August.


The Anthology is being put together by Random Static, in conjunction with Au Contraire – I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!

Birth Rights was the first short story I thought I would get published, and one that was a massive turning point for me in the way I feel about shorts. I can easily say that it helped me cross the barrier from feeling ‘so-so’ about them to actually enjoying them (maybe even loving them…). So to have it be included in a print anthology, being produced within my own country and full of other wonderful New Zealand writers is just amazing.

I couldn’t be happier about it 🙂
