At the Aurealis Awards

Cat Sparks and I just did a flying visit to Brisbane over the Australia Day weekend for the Aurealis Speculative Fiction Awards (for fiction written in 2007). I was a presenter in the Horror Short Fiction section (it went to Anna Tambour — yay, Anna!) and Cat won in the SF Short Fiction section for her story “Hollywood Roadkill”. She then went on the win the Best of the Best Convenors’ selection award — the Golden Aurealis. The ceremony was a spectacular affair, attracting publishers and writers galore, and a wonderful time was had by all. Especially Cat.

Her win was well deserved and comes on the heels of an intense and determined year of writing. Keep an ear/eye out for great things from Cat. She’s on an upward track. Way to go, Cat!

Here is me blathering on:
