Roll of the Dice

Garry Disher is touring the US promoting his new novel Blood Moon and, while in California, met up with Lee Goldberg - author of the Monk TV- tie-ins - who got something of a pleasant surprise when he took his visitor out to dinner.

The long-awaited release of the film adaptation of Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee is almost upon us, and in the "Australian Book Review" weblog Peter Rose introduces a review of the film, by Brian McFarlane,  which will appear in the June 1 edition of ABR.

 Australian sf/fantasy/horror writer Richard Harland looks to be on the verge of making it big with his new novel Worldshaker, and has put together a very comprehensive set of webpages detailing all he has learnt about the writing and publishng business.  As he introduces them: "These tips are for genre writers not literary writers, for storytellers not writers of semi-autobiographical memoirs."  But there is bound to be something for everyone here.

Angela Meyer attended the Emerging Writers' Festival in Melbourne recently and reports on what she found there.

Sally Warhaft, the editor of "The Monthly" magazine resigned recently, and now a new editor has been appointed: he's 23. Pavlov's Cat thinks he's going to struggle.

The "Readings" weblog provides us with a link to Richard Flanagan's closing speech at the Sydney Writers' Festival.
