  1. Dear Sean, I am interviewing Australian authors active in 2015-2016 for Aussie Snapshot 2016 and wanted to ask if you like to be involved. If you could direct me to a contact form or email, I can send you the query. Kind regards, Shauna O’Meara.

  2. Hi Agnes – thanks for the note, and apologies for the delay in replying. I think you may have the wrong Sean Monaghan – My Dad’s not John, and he didn’t work at Clerys 🙂

  3. Just read and enjoyed “Billows of Sarto”. Madame and I also have a love of volcanoes, which we’ve visited in southeastern Australia (a caldera national park whose name eludes me), Japan (Fuji), Hawaii (Kilauea and Kilauea Iki, plus a rarely visited lava tube on the slope of Mauna Kea), Italy (Aetna and Stromboli), and Iceland (Eyja and the Andaman islands). Stromboli at sunset, during a mild eruption, was probably the peak experience (pun not intended), but spending an hour soaking in the ambience at the bottom of Kilauea Iki comes a close second. My brother has the best souvenir, namely a pair of sneakers he melted climbing Anak Krakatau. Apparently it’s a family thing. Best wishes for future fictions — and volcanoes!

    1. Thanks Geoff. Sorry for the late reply :-).
      I’m envious of your visit to Aetna and Stromboli, and those others. I did see Fuji in the distance from a train as I travelled south. You’ve certainly got around a whole lot of places.

  4. Hey Sean, I just read “The Molenstraat Music Festival” Asimov’s September 2015. I had to reach out and let you know that your story moved me to tears more than once. What a delightful and most powerful story. The relationship of Clancy and Eleanor I completely related to. Being a musician and lover of classical music, the aspect of losing one’s passion to gain some sort of proficiency was also most intriguing. Thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable read!
