The story so far...  
The lovely Ripley Patton is collating a list of Sir Julius Vogel eligible stories and people for the SpecFic NZ website. She also asked whether Debbie or I were thinking of seeking nomination for an SJV for Best Newcomer. I replied that we're both a bit light on publications to date, but it did get me thinking. As a result I have compiled the following list of publications with links - and it's a lot longer than I expected it to be. This is largely due to me taking a while to realise that I've been quite busy recording and publishing podcast fiction, have had a few short stories published including two in anthologies, and have a bunch of rpg scenarios online too.

Short Stories written by me
No Hidden Costs in the A Foreign Country anthology from Random Static Press
The Tunnel a flash SF story on Wily Writers
Fire Safety a humorous flash piece on Every Day Fiction
Waste Not a humorous flash piece on AntiSF
Dead Weight a story with a twist on EDF
The Death Star of New Bethlehem a Christmas tale
Murray the Sex Machine a PG rated SF story published at Sentientonline.net and included in their first anthology
Solomon's Pearls a dark SF story published by Bluewood Publishing

Collaborative Works
The Event a collaborative novel available as a free download from lulu.com
A Foreign Country Podcast Promo - a podcast I organised, recorded the intro for and edited. Includes 2 stories from the anthology read by Richard Barnes and Angel Leigh McCoy

Dude, I so need to catch up with you guys. I feel like I'm completely out of touch with what you're doing! Part of it is that I still haven't worked out podcasts. I imagine I just need to click on the link... but work will block it. I need to look into them at home.

All the podcasts are downloadable mp3s, so you can listen to them on your iphone :-)

Thanks! Making a list has inspired me to submit and write some more stuff too. And there's already another podcast to add...
