Golly gosh. My article ‘How Mary Shelley Continues to Influence Modern Science Fiction’, published in Aurealis #145, has been nominated for a Ditmar Award, specifically the William Atheling Jr Award for Criticism or Review. I’m either flushed from excitement or I’m going through early menopause. 🤣
Congratulations to everyone on the shortlist, including Kaaron Warren, Eugen Bacon, Gene Flynn, Aaron Dries (I nominated ‘Dirty Heads!), Alan Baxter, Joseph Ashley-Smith, Rebecca Fraser, and JS Breukelaar .
Now excuse me while I have some sort of personal crisis. 🤣
