The finalists for the 2014 Aurealis Awards. A fantastic list, and definitely one you should check out. The SF/F community down here in Australia is ridiculously low, and each time a book is published it’s a giant risk. Do yourself (and them) a favour and pick these titles up and support the industry. 🙂
Conflux Inc., organisers of the 2014 Aurealis Awards, are delighted to announce the finalists for the 2014 Aurealis Awards.
Judging Coordinator, Tehani Wessely, said that with over 750 entries across the twelve categories, the judges had a hugely challenging job.
“As is always the case, the judges agreed that entries were of a very high standard and the final decisions were subject to much debate among the panellists. The competition becomes stronger every year.
“The trend towards quality e-published fiction continued in 2014, with a high percentage of entries published this way. Both traditional publishing and the smaller presses are well represented in the shortlists, reflecting the general entry trend.
“We would like to thank all the judges for their time and effort judging of these awards.”
