The nominations for the 2008 Aurealis Awards have been announced. They’re not on the web yet, though they should be on the Aurealis Awards website fairly soon. I’m delighted to say, though, that my anthology The Starry Rift, has been nominated in the inaugural ‘Best Anthology’ category. I’m very grateful to the judges, and want to also congratulate my fellow category nominees Jack Dann for Dreaming Again and Bill Congreve and Michelle Marquardt for The Year’s Best Australian Science Fiction and Fantasy. I’m honored to share their company. My sincere congratulations, too, to all of the nominees int he the other categories.
