My apologies for the long delay in updating this blog, but illness has been enduring and I have concentrated on getting through the day, subsequently writing relatively little. Still, at least I have been able to read - a great African SF/F book by Nnedi Okorafor Who Fears Death; Lavie Tidhar's excellent Cloud Permutations and N.K. Jemisin's Hundred Thousand Kingdoms. (I have Jemison's signed sequel The Broken Kingdoms, which I look forward to reading in warmer South African climes soon.)
Just to confirm that my story Of Hearts and Monkeys has been published in The Company He Keeps Anthology (PostScripts 22/23)
Finally, I have added a new piece on SF in SA (part 11) entitled Our Ancestors Are Not Ghosts. I have also added a later version of Science Fiction South Africa's (SFSA) SF magazine Probe (issue 141) - with many thanks to SFSA - which is available for download too. Happy Holidays as the Americans say.
