The Australian Shadows are the annual literary awards presented by the Australian Horror Writers Association and judged on the overall effect – the skill, delivery, and lasting resonance – of horror fiction written or edited by an Australian.
Of particular interest are the following two awards which have been won by New Zealand writers:
“Caterpillars” by Debbie Cowens (Baby Teeth – Bite Sized Tales of Terror, Paper Road Press)
“Baby Teeth – Bite Sized Tales of Terror” edited by Dan Rabarts and Lee Murray (Paper Road Press)
Congratulations to Debbie, Dan and Lee for becoming so good that the Aussies are trying to claim you.
