I'm very pleased to announce that my short story Where There's Smoke will be published in an anthology of the best short fiction by Australian men, alongside work by the likes of Tim Winton, JM Coetzee, Ryan O'Neill, Tony Birch, James Bradley and others. The collection, which itself is titled Where There's Smoke, will be published by Black Inc. in September 2015.
Where There's Smoke presents outstanding short fiction by Australia's finest male writers. These are tales of love, secrets, doubt and torment, the everyday and the extraordinary.
A man sleeps at the site of a massacre and wakes refreshed. An unassuming piano tuner is sent off to contribute to the war effort. A woman with Alzheimer's is dragged along by her interfering son to visit Uluru.
Brilliant, shocking and profound, these tales will leave you reeling in ways that only a great short story can.
