Congratulations to the winners and nominees of the various sets of speculative fiction awards across Australia this weekend!
Special congratulations go to Ticonderoga-related wins:
– Amanda Pillar for the Aurealis Award for Best Anthology for Bloodlines
– Kathleen Jennings for the Ditmar Award for Best Short Story, for “A Hedge of Yellow Roses” in Hear Me Roar
– Rivqa Rafael for the Ditmar for Best New Talent (one of her first sales, “Function A:save(target.Dawn)” was in Hear Me Roar, so we totally claim some connection)
– Stephanie Gunn for the Tin Duck for Best Professional Short Written Work for “The Flowers That Bloom Where Blood Touches Earth” in Bloodlines
Raising a glass to all!
