A fab night was had by all at this year’s Aurealis Awards held at Hotel Jasper in Melbourne. I’m very thrilled that my PhD exegesis tied for the Convenors’ Award award with Kim Wilkins, Lisa Fletcher, and Beth Driscoll’s Genre Worlds: Australian Popular Fiction in the 21st Century. We rock!
Swancon 2019 was small and cosy, the Fremantle Hotel a good choice of venue & Charlie Jane Anders a super fabulous overseas Guest of Honour. High fives all round!
Big thanks to fabulous Claire McKenna for wrangling an unruly bunch of spec fic writers onto a four day cruise from Melbourne to Kangaroo Island aboard the Pacific Jewel.
