Expatriate American Jack Dann is a major figure in Australian speculative fiction. He is, among other things the editor of the recent massive SF anthology Dreaming Again, which has been getting a whole lot of good reviews (Andrew Macrae is reviewing it in the next issue of Overland. (As an aside, I have a story, ‘Twilight in Caeli-Amur’ in it). There’s an interview with him here where he says some nice things about me and a bunch of other writers. Jack is providing us with a story for our Melbourne Futures supplement in Overland 196, which is going to be a special supplement looking at future and alternative Melbournes.
