(Pre)historical fiction

During the month of September, I’ve been the guest blogger for Southerly, the journal of the English department at Sydney University.

I’ve been in Europe for most of September. It’s been tricky getting the posts typed up and sent off at times! But it’s also been a great opportunity to reflect on my trip, which was a research trip for a work of what I’m calling ‘pre-historical’ fiction (apparently, ‘prehistoric fiction’ is the usual term, but that sounds like the fiction itself is prehistoric, which would refer to something entirely different – narratives from pre-literate oral traditions, or something like that – so I’m sticking with my own awkward coinage).

All the posts are up now – here they are:

  1. Historical fiction
  2. (Pre)historical fiction
  3. Mode, genre and time
  4. Klekkende Høj

There is a new issue of Southerly (the journal itself) coming out soon, too. I’ve got a piece in there as well; I’ll link that up once it’s launched.
