Awardwatch:Aurealis Awards

The 2018 Aurealis Awards finalists have been announced. While these awards are for Australians, it isn’t uncommon to see Aussie based Kiwis on the ballot and it is no different this year. Look for Juliet Marillier and Simon Petrie in the finalists. We have probably missed one or two others – let us know in the comments who else qualifies for us to claim.

The Sara Douglass Book Series Award is also part of the Aurealis package. Juliet Marillier is also in the 2018 finalists for that award.

But while checking out the Aurealis award, keep an eye out for the names Kaaron Warren and Alan Baxter – they both appear more than once. Why is this significant? Because both are guests of honour at Geysercon at QB weekend this year in Rotorua.
