The Devil in Mr Pussy – Paul Haines

Paul Haines was raised in the ’70s, in the wrong part of Auckland, New Zealand. Vowing to never call Australia home, he now lives in Melbourne with his wife and daughter, who all successfully navigated the treacherous waters of IVF. ‘The Devil In Mr Pussy’ is dedicated to Mr Pussy, who passed away before the story was published. Paul survived the inaugural Clarion South 2004 writers workshop and has won the Aurealis and Ditmar Australian Science Fiction Awards for his writing.  His collection Doorways For The Dispossessed was published by Prime in 2006 and won the New Zealand Sir Julius Vogel Award for Best Collection. Paul has two new collections, Slice of Life and The Last Days of Kali Yuga slated for release in late 2008, early 2009. He is also a member of the SuperNOVA writers group based in Melbourne, though has been fairly inactive of late due to being distracted by cancer which has been fucking up his life somewhat.
