Aurealis Awards

Belated congratulations to the Aurealis Award winners, especially Sean’s/Russell’s win for Magic Dirt and Kirstyn’s well-deserved win in the Horror short story section.

And in case you’re wondering what happened to Black Box in the AAs … now the awards are done, I can reveal it was withdrawn from consideration. If you ever catch me in a quiet moment in person somewhere, I’d be more than happy to express my views on how this came to pass, the Horror panel convenor, and which bridges are currently burning.
