Listen in weekly to a show devoted to the presentation of flash speculative fiction stories (science fiction, fantasy, and horror).

The AntiSF Radio show also features discussions and panel presentations recorded at various speculative fiction conventions and awards ceremonies.

AntiSF is where speculative flash fiction belongs - downside up!

Do you experience something other than understanding when you hear the word Mimosa? Are you a synaesthete? On the other finger, perhaps you've seen or touched a mimosa pudica, also known as a "sensitive plant", a plant that closes its leaves when they're touched. That' s nothing to do with the reason that this episode of the AntipodeanSF Radio Show is called "Mimosa". Focus on the star. Focus on the fiction. Grab a glass of neutron star and drink slowly.

Welcome, I'm Nuke, as you know from the intro, and thanks for joining me for a half an hour of speculative fiction, a movie review, and a segment of a longer chat with some of the leading edge editors in the Australian SF community, during which we find out what's coming up for Ticonderoga and Fablecroft, gain a glimpse in who is and isn't poaching writers, not like eggs we hope, and have those aforementioned stories and a poem, and perhaps a review. Seems I've been to the movies rather more of late. Let's blame the cold hemisphere weather.
