Aurealis shortlist

Aurealis shortlist

Downright chuffed to learn The Measure Of Sorrow is on the Aurealis Award shortlist for best collection. There’s some esteemed company on the list, and it means the world to even get a nod.

Congrats to all the shortlistees and a big shout out to my homies on the list – some with 2, 3 and 4 noms!

Online launch: The Measure of Sorrow

in conversation with John Langan

Big thanks to everyone who rocked up to the virtual launch of The Measure of Sorrow, hosted by Meerkat Press last weekend. For those who couldn’t make it (or you hardcore types committed to watching the “Director’s cut”), here’s the full-length unexpurgated conversation, including Ohio, Kafka, black lakes, book burning, famous dead people, deep-fried platypi, Tina Turner, passing references to the collection, and big-ups to other people’s awesome books. Hope you can check it out!

Huge thanks to John for being a great host, an irrepressible conversationalist, and an all-round stand-up guy. If you’ve not yet read his latest collection – Corpsemouth and other Autobiographies – I insist you rectify that immediately.

The Measure of Sorrow – Blog Tour

I love a good listicle – the only trouble being having to keep it so short! Seriously, I could have kept going and going with this one, but picked these five as the collections that made the profoundest impression on me when I read them. Five collections that literally changed how I think and how I see the world. If there’s something here you haven’t read, go rectify that immediately.
