It has come to our attention this weekend that copies of The 400-Million-Year Itch by Steven Utley, ordered through online channels since 25 January 2013, have been printed using incorrect cover art.
We are currently working with the printer to have this issue rectified as soon as possible.
All internal work is the final corrected text, it is only the cover that has the wrong artwork.
We'd like to apologise to anyone who has received this version of the book and will replace any copies with this cover.
Contributors Pia Ravenari and Anthony Panegyres joined editor Liz Grzyb in front of a crowd of friends, family and supporters.
Belly dancers from Mystique set the scene with a wonderful performance, before Anthony Panegyres read from his story "Oleander: An Ottoman Tale".
The event also gave us an opportunity to heap praise on Pia Ravenari for her wonderful cover art on Juliet Marillier's collection Prickle Moon.
Dreaming of Djinn will be commercially available in May. You can pre-order from indiebooksonline at http://www.indiebooksonline.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=141

"Melbourne-based author, Felicity Dowker begins her collection of fifteen stories with the award-winning ‘Bread and Circuses’, involving an unusual feminist zombie evolution. Dowker believes that writing horror is “a way to set wrong things right”. Certainly, many of the stories, accompanied by Dowker’s background footnotes, involve retribution, particularly from a female perspective .‘Us, After the House Came Back’ sees revenge and solace for the wife in an abused relationship, while “the bad guy” has it coming in spades in the ultimately gory, ‘The Female of the Species is More Deadly Than the Male’. Dowker’s evocative stories benefit from the stylish production of enterprising Western Australian small press Ticonderoga."

First, Farren Miller gives the book a great review. We're especially happy to read
Another kind of combination gives this book its unique tone: however grand the fantasy, passionate the romance, or regally exotic these Fae, their stories inevitably take on some of the gritty frankness, spilled blood, and shit of ordinary human life.
You can read the full review in Locus.
And then, turning to the 2012 Year in Review, Midnight and Moonshine makes their Recommended Reading List. We're incredibly happy at this much-deserved achievement for a fantastic book.
