'Feast or Famine' makes Macabre

My short story "Feast or Famine" -- about a war correspondent and photographer trapped in a bunker in Afghanistan -- will be published in the upcoming Brimstone Press title Macabre: A new era in Australian horror.

The story has been significantly improved since its appearance as part of The Writing Show's Halloween podcast, thanks to the judicious editing of Angela Challis and Marty Young.

It is certainly the most macabre story I've ever written.

The contents list is a veritable who's who of Australian speculative fiction, with authors such as Shane Jiraiya Cummings, Stephen Dedman, Terry Dowling, Russell B Farr, Paul Haines, Richard Harland, Robert Hood, Kirstyn McDermott, Kyla Ward, Kaaron Warren, Sean Williams and more.

Congratulations, Gary!

But I loved "Feast or Famine" the way it was on The Writing Show. How could it possibly be improved?

Gary Kemble said...

Thanks Paula. It's even more gruesome! :)

Paula said...

Wow! I can't wait to read it. You must let me know when the anthology is available.

And wouldn't it make a great show to interview Angela and Marty about how they edited the anthology?

Gary Kemble said...

Yes Paula, I will definitely let you know. And yes also, I think interviewing Angela and Marty is a great idea.

Well done, Gary - that looks like bein' a great anthology.
