All related to awards or competitions in some way…
1. Win a copy of Stories, edited by Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio, over at FableCroft. Simply tell us your favourite Australian short story or novel to win! Oh yeah, and I’ve also announced the TOC for Australis Imaginarium… 🙂
2. Ditmar nominations are open and I’ve created an Eligible Works spreadsheet. It’s as accurate as I can make it (and people can still tell me eligible works, please!) – works are for the 2009 calendar year.
3. And the 2010 Aurealis Awards are open for nomination as well! Nominations are covering an extended period this time around, so it’s open for works published between November 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010. Please consider your judging panel’s sanity: nominate and send works in as early as possible. Please!
4. And don’t forget to vote for the Hugos if you are a member of Worldcon (Aussiecon 4, Melbourne, September – if you’re not going, why not?!). Ballots must be received by July 31.
5. Finally, you can win a signed copy of Nicole Murphy’s debut book Secret Ones at Voyager Online. Easy peasy!
