Congratulations to all the Aurealis Nominees. I hope you're all excited, because, if you win, you're allowed into all the hottest nightclubs, and, say, if you want sit up the front of aeroplanes with the pilot, maybe flick a few switches, you're allowed. It's true. Dangerous but true.
I'm particularly excited to see Grace's book "The Silver Road" shortlisted for Fantasy, and Martin's novel "Carnies" in the shortlist for Horror. Fingers crossed, guys.
Short storywise though I'm suddenly struck by how little I've read this year. Seems like a solid line-up though, and a fine reading list for early January.
