The Aurealis Awards shortlist was announced yesterday and I was thrilled to see so many friends make the final list. Particular nods to Jason Fischer, Angela Slatter, Kirstyn McDermott, Alan Baxter, Thoraiya Dyer, Liz Grzyb, Kathleen Jennings, Jason Franks, and Tehani Wessely.
Phantazein is shortlisted for best anthology, which is pretty damn cool. You should go buy it and read it. I’m not at all biased ;).
Look at that pretty cover.
