It’s with mixed emotions that we announce there will be a change in the Twelve Planets line up. Life happens and Cat Sparks has had to bow out of the project leaving a very large hole to fill. Luckily for Twelfth Planet Press we have a collection that we believe will indeed stand up to the challenge.

We’re delighted to announce that the twelfth Twelve Planet will be a collection by Lisa Hannett and Angela Slatter, titled Baggage.

Angela Slatter writes dark fantasy and horror. She is the author of the Aurealis Award-winning The Girl with No Hands and Other Tales, the WFA-shortlisted Sourdough and Other Stories, and the new collection/mosaic novel (with Lisa L Hannett), Midnight and Moonshine. Her work has appeared in such writerly venues as the Mammoth Book of New Horror #22, Australian and US Best Of anthologies, Fantasy Magazine, Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet, Dreaming Again, and Steampunk II: Steampunk Reloaded. She has a British Fantasy Award for “The Coffin-Maker’s Daughter” (from A Book of Horrors, Stephen Jones, ed.), a PhD in Creative Writing and blogs at www.angelaslatter.com. In 2013 she was awarded one of the three inaugural Queensland Writers Fellowships.

Lisa L Hannett hails from Ottawa, Canada but now lives in Adelaide, South Australia – city of churches, bizarre murders and pie floaters. Since 2008, she has sold or published over 50 short stories in venues such as Clarkesworld Magazine, Fantasy, Weird Tales, ChiZine, Shimmer, the Year’s Best Australian Fantasy and Horror (2010 & 2011), and Imaginarium: Best Canadian Speculative Writing (2012 & 2013). Lisa has won three Aurealis Awards, including Best Collection 2011 for her first book, Bluegrass Symphony, which was also nominated for a World Fantasy Award. Midnight and Moonshine, co-authored with Angela Slatter, was published in 2012. You can find her online at http://lisahannett.com and on Twitter @LisaLHannett.
