About this Host

Ion Newcombe is the editor and publisher of AntipodeanSF, Australia’s longest running online speculative flash fiction magazine, regularly issued since January 1998. He has been a zealous reader and occasional author/editor of speculative fiction since his childhood in the 1960s.

“Nuke” aka "The Jollyfish" lives in the holiday seaside town of Nambucca Heads, where he is self-employed in IT training, electronic repairs, computer support, desktop publishing, editing, writing, and website implementation.

Ion is also the resident tech-head, skeptic and vice-president of community radio station 2NVR, Nambucca Valley Radio, where he produces The AntipodeanSF Radio Show and podcast.

When not working or broadcasting, Nuke is an occasional dragon boater, a maker of origami dragons and other mythical creatures, and a dabbler in amateur radio.
