      1989 was a memorable year for me, for reasons my parents wouldn’t like to remember… It was the year boys first started to notice I was a girl! Looking back, it’s debateable whether this was because my bright red swimming costume really suited me, or because of its associations with Baywatch! Either way, it was a year of cycling down to the beach, balancing a blaring ghettoblaster and enjoying the sunshine… and the attention. What did 1989 mean to you?One way to find out is to read "Eight [...]

      Thoroughly enjoyed every story in this amazing anthology from Literary Mix Tapes (eMergent Publishing). From the gently confronting, to the incredibly raw, I don't think I have ever seen the year 1989 in such a light! I am honoured to share the pages of this anthology with my debut story, Soldier Out of Time and look forward to revisiting each of its companion stories - to experience the ride all over again.

      I was given a copy of Eighty Nine by the editor, Jodi Cleghorn, without any expectation of promotion. When I read the collection, I was so delighted by the consistent quality of the stories, I offered to post reviews.Anthologies, even from a single author we admire, tend to be a bit up and down depending on our individual tastes. I read the opening stories of Eighty Nine and enjoyed them, then found I was up to the middle of the book and still reading avidly without wanting to pause, not even be [...]

      A collection of 26 short stories, based around the cultural, political and social happenings of 1989.I was absolutely impressed with every story in this collection - and that happens rarely for me; there's usually one or two stories that are a little ho-hum, but not here. Maybe it was because I was in my late teens in 1989 and can relate to the times that are central to these stories, maybe it is because the editor has picked a collection of brilliant stories to fill this anthology.Was good to s [...]

      I first picked up this collection after hearing so many good things about it and you know what? They are all true. Anthologies can be hit and miss, especially ones that "specialise" in a genre - not so with Pulp Ink.I won't go through all the stories but suffice to say that every author brought something different to the table - revenge, sex, hitmen, greed and money. Some of the stories were told from differing POV - the criminal, the hired gun, the victimCertainly a collection that deserves its [...]

      Another community project from eMergent Publishing's Literary Mix Tapes imprint. Twenty-five speculative fiction stories from emerging writers around the world are all linked by a playlist from 1989. There are some fantastic stories in here, underscoring the talent that's out there in cyberspace. Corralled by the indomitable Jodi Cleghorn, it's a testament to the creativity and chutzpah romping around in small, independent presses. Buy it!Disclaimer: I have a story in this anthology and am damne [...]

This review is the personal opinion of Katharine herself, and does not necessarily reflect the opinion of any judging panel, the judging coordinator or the Aurealis Awards management team. To be safe, I won't be recording my review here until after the AA are over.

      Such a diverse range of speculative fiction stories! Some are uplifting, some will make you laugh, and a lot will creep you out. I loved reading what my fellow authors did with their prompts.
