Out of the letterbox and into my sweaty hands came volume 5 of indigo yesterday. Indigo is a biannual journal of Western Australian writing. Issue launches are always exciting but even more so this time, because there are two of my stories in there!
Delys Bird does a great interview with Tim Winton and there are poems, short stories, reviews and essays / non fiction. My story 'Toxicity' is in the fiction section and 'High Times at the Hotel Desiccation' in the non fiction. (I had to think about that one. Being a spinner of ripping yarns means 'fact' and 'fiction' are mercurial media for me. I get carried away every time. Actually both stories could paddle happily in either genre!)
These stories were posted on A WineDark Sea but I took them down, when I submitted to indigo. So, if you want to read sex, drugs and fatal attraction, or the mad happenings at an isolated Pilbara roadhouse, then buy the book! It's out now.
