Sir Julius Vogel Award Nominees Announced

SFFANZLogoWebHeader The list of nominees for the upcoming Sir Julius Vogel Awards is now available. I’m honoured to have my name among some fine company.

I’ll be attending the awards on June 5th in Wellington at Au Contraire. Now, it may not seem obvious, but I have in fact never attended a Sci Fi Con. I suspect I’m in for a fast education.

Anyone have any tips on etiquette, behaviours and mores?

Sir Julius Vogel Awards Finalist

smFront-v5A few posts back I mentioned the possibility that a couple of my stories: “The Molenstraat Music Festival” in Asimov’s, and “The Harpsichord Elf” in Capricious could make it onto the ballot for the Sir Julius Vogel Awards – New Zealand’s Science Fiction awards.

Well, the stories made it. “Molenstraat” in the novella category, and “Elf” in the short story category. As you can imagine, I’m pretty excited about this. And I thank all of those who offered to put in their votes to help me make the ballot – Dane, Daniel, Andi, Dr Bob, Jen, Jane (if I’ve left you out I apologise: let me know and I’ll fix it). I do appreciate it.

Thank you so much.

So now I need to figure out getting to the ceremony at Au Contraire in Wellington in June. That’s a little more straightforward than Brisbane 🙂
