Angela Slatter first Aussie to win a BFA

a-book-of-horrorsA belated congratulations to Brisbane author Dr Angela Slatter (pronounced Slayter) for winning a British Fantasy Award for her short fiction The Coffin-Maker's Daughter.

You can find the story in Stephen Jones’ anthology, A book of Horrors.

Dr Slatter was overjoyed at the win, resorting to womble-esque dancing to celebrate.  And why wouldn’t one considering the calibre of previous winners, notably Neil Gaiman and Stephen King.

Regular readers will remember that Dr Slatter has a co-written work with Dr Lisa Hannett called Midnight & Moonshine coming out from Ticonderoga next month.
