Judging this year’s Shadows Awards

Posted by on Dec 27, 2011

A quick note that I am one of the judges for this year’s Australian Shadows Awards, part of the Australian Horror Writers Association.

The Australian Shadows is an annual literary award presented by the AHWA and judged on the overall effect – the skill, delivery, and lasting resonance – of horror fiction written or edited by an Australian.

The award has five categories: Novel; Long Fiction (novellas and novelettes); Short Fiction (short stories); Collection (single author collections); and Edited Publication(anthologies and magazine issues). I’m one of the Shorts judges this year and will list the winners once they are officially announced.
