2012 Snapshot

The Aussie Spec Fic Snapshot has taken place three times over the past eight years. In 2005, Ben Peek spent a frantic week interviewing 43 people in the Australian spec fic scene, and since then, it’s grown every time, now taking  a team of interviewers working together to accomplish! In the lead up to Continuum 8 in Melbourne, this team, consisting of Alisa KrasnosteinKathryn LingeDavid McDonaldHelen MerrickIan MondJason NahrungAlex PierceTansy Rayner RobertsTehani Wessely and Sean Wright, blogged interviews for Snapshot 2012.

As we celebrated the breadth and depth of the Australian spec fic scene, 2012 Snapshot was also a bittersweet time and we took the opportunity to remember two well-loved members of the community who sadly passed away in the past year; Paul Haines and Sara Douglass.

You can find the past three Snapshots at the following links: 2005, 2007 and 2010 and the 2012 Snapshot at the links below.
