Sallow Bend and The Fall are Aurealis Awards FInalists
What an absolute blast to discover myself twice on the recently released 2022 Aurealis Awards shortlists! The Aurealis is the premier genre ficiton award in Australia and I've been after one my entire career. Last year, I finally won my first, for The Gulp in Best Collection. That was my 11th nomination! So imagine my joy yesterday when the 2022 shortlists were announced and I saw The Fall, the follow-up to The Gulp, listed in Best Collection and Sallow Bend listed in Best Horror Novel. Amazing! The talent on those two shortlists alone, let alone the rest of the categories, is amazing. Huge congratulations to all the nominees. I'm ecstatic! Full shortlists are here.
