It’s a good day for speculative fiction at Booked Out! The shortlist for the 2012 Aurealis Awards has been released, marking the best Australian science-fiction, fantasy and horror writing of the year. Booked Outers Jack Heath, Isobelle Carmody, Mark Wilson and Justin D’Ath are all nominated, as well as Booked Out’s very own Jack Nicholls!
The awards will be announced on May 18th, and we’ll keep our fingers crossed for all our nominees. As most of them are facing off together in the Young Adult category, we hope that whatever happens the office will be celebrating!
