My Australian Shadows Judge’s Report is now available.

As an informal addendum, I am now a massive fangirl of everything that Angela Slatter and Kirstyn McDermott write.

Deciding the short list was hard, because the quality of work in 2010 was extremely high.  I really enjoyed my second year of judging, and am somewhat sad that I can’t judge again for 2011.  Congratulations to everyone who made it onto the short list, and believe me when I say that there were many more who deserved to be there.

And this reminds me that I need to work on my judge’s report.

Rather belatedly, I can announce that I’m serving as a judge for the Australian Shadows Awards again this year, along with Craig Bezant and Jeff Richie.

Judging the awards was amazing last year, with so many fantastic works entered, and I can already see that this year is going to be as good, if not better.

The Australian Shadows Awards winners have been announced.

The winners are:

Long fiction:
Slights by Kaaron Warren.

Edited Publication:
Grants Pass, edited by Jennifer Brozek and Amanda Pillar.

Short fiction:
Six Suicides by Deborah Biancotti.

You can also read the judge’s reports, mine included, at the link above.

I am extremely pleased with the winners. It was really, really hard for me to narrow down a shortlist out of the many entries we received, though thankfully it was extremely painless for us as judges to agree on a final shortlist. It was a great year for dark Australian fiction, and gives me great hope as for the future of said fiction here.

I’m especially chuffed at Grants Pass winning, since I have a story in it (which obviously, wasn’t eligible).
