Rich Horton is writing up his 2008 year that was, which I always look forward to reading. In fact, this is where Not if You Were the Last Short Story on Earth came from - Ben and I were reading them and talking about it and ... voila.

Anyway, Horton points out that 5 out of the 6 stories we published this year were by female writers and 3 were SF. I'm quite chuffed with those stats, to be honest!

Issue 5 is 3 for 3 too. It will be out at the beginning of January - the delay has to do with Twelfth Planet Press pushing the publishing schedule to before October from now on. So when you're nursing your post NYE headache and you're looking for something to read, you might grab a copy of Shiny 5 with a new post-apocalyptic Perth story from Sue Isle called "Paper Dragons", a computer geek story by Emily Mah Tippets called "Root" and a lovely teen love drama by Tansy Rayner Roberts called "Not Like Us". And lots of reviews including Starry Rift and How to Ditch Your Fairy.
