AntipodeanSF, helmed by Ion (Nuke) Newcombe, is an Australian speculative fiction institution. Fueled by Ion’s commitment and devotion to showcase the many diverse voices of the antipodean speculative fiction community, AntiSF, Australia’s longest running speculative fiction magazine, has acted as a publishing platform for so many since 1998.
When Nuke put the call out for contributions for his landmark 250th Issue, I heeded it with enthusiasm. Having been published in AntiSF as far back as 2009, and again in 2014, I know I’m one of many who are grateful for Ion’s tireless efforts.
Issue 250 celebrates AntiSF’s massive milestone with a huge issue containing over fifty flash and short stories from previous contributors. You’ll find my fantasy piece, ‘Once Upon a Moonlit Clearing’ in there as well.
The issue will be live online for three months, and a print anthology is also forthcoming.
Take a bow, Nuke. And congratulations on this landmark achievement.
Your upside-down spec fic community salutes you!
Happy writing, happy reading, and happy days.
