Australian Shadows Awards finalists

This came out on Monday, and I’ve yet to post about it.  If anything, it’s proof that there isn’t enough time in the world for reading AND writing, as, aside from the Midnight Echo and the Aurealis stuff, I haven’t had a chance to read a lot of it yet.  😦  Anyway, congratulations to all the finalists!
