Daikaiju! 2 Scores a Nomination

The finalists in the 2007 Aurealis Australian Speculative Fiction Awards have just been announced — and Chris McMahon’s epic giant monster story from Daikaiju! 2: Revenge of the Giant Monsters, edited by Robert Hood and Robin Pen, is on the SF shortlist. He’s up against Cat Sparks (who has scored with two stories here and three overall) and well-known writers Simon Brown and Penelope Love.

This is great news for Chris and for Daikaiju! 2! It’s a big boost for giant monster apocalypses as well!

    Chris will agree with the sentiment. He’s very excited to have the story recognised as it’s one he says he particularly loves.

    Thanks, Richard. You non-Aussies weren’t eligible for this one, so we’ll all keep a few fingers crossed for the international award/Year’s Best possibilities, too.
