[Extract] This article combines the voice of an academic with that of a writer/author who is also a native of North Queensland, and one who, less commonly, publishes non-realist, or speculative fiction. This area, now often called specific in Australia, covers the genres of science fiction, or SF, fantasy, and horror. Here I will examine the way in which the three forms' generic protocols and markets can intersect with the establishment of a North Queensland writer's regional and/or gendered voice.
