Awardwatch : Australian Shadows Awards

This is an interesting little quirk. The Australasian Horror Writers Association have announced the finalists in the 2019 Australian Shadows Awards. You can read the list of finalists on their web site.

The interesting thing is that the association announces themselves as “Australasian” – that means they consider themselves open to at least Australian and New Zealand members. And possibly other countries (e.g. PNG) depending which of the many differing definitions of Australasia you care to use (we found 6 such definitions – no two of which had the same country membership).

However these are their “Australian” Shadows Awards. Interesting huh? Anyway you can amuse yourself spotting the Kiwi authors among the Aussies in the award shortlist.
