Trent Jamieson is an award-winning novelist and short story writer. Orbit published his Death Works novels, which were about love, the city of Brisbane*, and the business of death. Angry Robot published the Nightbound Land Series which is sort of cli-fi, sort of steamclunk**, sort of space opera. Text published Day Boy; it’s country towns, vampires, and bildungsroman. This is the back catalogue (in mostly chronological order) and some new ones, and a bit of mostly useless writing advice, and some how-these-stories-beganisms. He has just had a baby daughter! Who knows how often he’ll put stories down here! His website is at www.trentjamieson.com.au *It’s a city in Australia. **yes, clunk.

Science Fiction Post Human Dorothy Gale Wizard of Oz Star ships sprung with the flicking of wrists A rain of spores Coral Wars

Alarm bells rang. Common enough in a state of Anthozoan war. Tocsins echoing: warning of collisions imminent or induline spore clouds and polyps drifting and falling like death. But this clamour was different, urgent and strange.

Science Fiction space opera posthuman Habitats

Home a spinning sentience, a wondrous habitat.  Habitats, what arrogance! Once, long ago, before my race grew tired of space travel, that was their purpose. World ships modelled on cetaceans -- deep brained and singing, bellies full of verdancy.
