Last month I took part in SFComet contest. Along with three Chinese and one Australian authors I wrote a story to the prompt 'Part-time Beggar' my story was then translated into Mandarin and entered into the October contest. 

My story won. 

I'm thrilled. I'd like to thank my translator, he or she must have done a wonderful job. 

I'd also like to thank the vampire squid, who's physiology provided inspiration for my main character alien. 

If you're interested in taking part in SFComet's monthly contest to Bring the Best of World SF to You, find the guidelines here.


  1. Great news! Which country are you going for next?

    1. So many countries! I'd love France or Italy.

    2. And India. I've been published in Indian SF, but never translated into any Indian language.

  2. You're practically on a translation world tour!
