AntiSF is where speculative flash fiction belongs - downside up!


Apr 9, 2012

Hello SF fans around the world, just a few words from me, Nuke your host and editor for this very show -- the AntiSF radio Show 166 Alpha, in which you will hear five fine pieces of speculative flash fiction from the pages AntipodeanSF online, something that you can always find at, or even if you really want to economise on your typing.

In this issue, beamed at you from a secret location in Nambucca Heads on the Mid North coast of NSW here in Australia, you'll hear speculative stories. Of course. And what you'll hear will range the genre boundaries, and perhaps even step outside them. Don't mind the wandering. Planets do it. And I do it too. Indeed, there's a bit of wandering and wondering in each of these stories. And no, naming them will not reduce there power over you.

You will hear "Make Mine A Macchiato" by Mark Webb, a story that sits firmly in the fantasy genre, then Eulogium by Greg Mellor, a bunch of words that is clearly science fiction. Then we have the stories that are harder to slot. These include "The House of Benevolence" by Ken McGrath, "Phobic" by Kevin J. Phyland, and Apocalyptia by CK Palmes.
