I am very happy to see a selection of quality speculative fiction recognised at the Aurealis Awards this year. Huzzah to all the winners! I do admit to jumping up and down and hallooing over one in particular: Karen Healey, a fellow transplanted Kiwi, whose ‘Guardian of the Dead’ (set in NZ) won best YA novel. Go Karen, go the NZ contingent, go the Christchurch connection!
Seriously, great wins, wonderful writers all. Check out these titles.
