The Australian Shadows Awards are:
… the annual literary awards presented by the AHWA and judged on the overall effect - the skill, delivery, and lasting resonance - of horror fiction written or edited by an Australian. [source: Australian Horror Writers Association]
Birthday Suit – Martin Livings
Surviving the End – Craig Bezant
Through Splintered Walls – Kaaron Warren
The list includes two writers that I have read recently. And I am very happy to see them win, I don’t tend to read much horror,but those selected were certainly good writing. Congrats to Kaaron, Kirstyn and the others, whose works I have yet to read.
Oh and isn’t the trophy delightfully macabre, it’s made by Nightshade Fx
