An article by Tim Jones – “It’s J.G. Ballard’s future. We’re just living in it.” which originally appeared in Helen Lowe’s Aus/NZ SF&F Author Series on her blog– has been republished in the US SF&F blog io9. Read it here.
Tim Jones is a poet and author of both science fiction and literary fiction. He lives in Wellington, New Zealand. Among his recent books are fantasy novel Anarya’s Secret, short story collection Transported (Vintage, 2008), which was longlisted for the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award and is now available for the Kindle, and poetry anthology Voyagers: Science Fiction Poetry from New Zealand (Interactive Press, 2009), which he co-edited with Mark Pirie. Voyagers won “Best Collected Work” at the 2010 Sir Julius Vogel Awards.
Tim has also recently summed up his Au Contraire writer’s workshop “Getting Published in New Zealand” as a two part series on his blog and it is a very informative read.
