All the Colours of the Shortlist

20 02 2017

The 2016 Aurealis Awards shortlist is hot off the press. Here’s the shortlisting for SF novellas:

Waking in Winter, Deborah Biancotti (PS Publishing)

“Salto Mortal”, Nick T Chan (Lightspeed #73)

“Going Viral”, Thoraiya Dyer (Dimension6 #8, coeur de lion)

The Bonobo’s Dream, Rose Mulready (Seizure Press)

“All the Colours of the Tomato”, Simon Petrie (Dimension6 #9, coeur de lion)

“Did We Break the End of the World?”, Tansy Rayner Roberts (Defying Doomsday, Twelfth Planet Press)

I’m flattered, or humbled (or both, if that’s possible) to be in such company, and really pleased to be one of the category’s two flag-bearers for Keith Stevenson’s Dimension6. (And, yes, the zine is still completely free to download …)
