The curious might care to glance at


where the latest issue of the Australian sf/fantasy magazine EIDOLON can be
downloaded (at a price). It contains a small entertainment by yours truly
(`Infinite Monkey'), and a mixed batch of other Aussie fiction. I certainly
wouldn't recommend paying $US10.95 just to read my story, but there's
plenty more to enjoy if you're feeling adventurous. Here's the contents'
list and a few details:


                    Indicator Species by Cecily Scutt
                    Two Thousand Years by Russell Blackford
                    Marilyn by Jack Dann
                    Three Roses by Garth Nix
                    Matthew 24:36 by Chris Lawson
                    Seas of Change by Carol Ryles
                    Infinite Monkey by Damien Broderick
                    Morda's Wrath by Misha Kumashov
                    The Elephant Sways As It Walks by Geoffrey Maloney
                    The Dry-Witch by Penelope Love
                    The Devotee by Stephen Dedman
                    A Serpent in Eden by Simon Brown & Alison Tokley
