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!
