The Aurealis Awards shortlist for works published in 2015 came out yesterday, and I was mightily pleased to discover that one of my stories  – Breaking Windows, published in Aurealis Magazine Issue #84 – is shortlisted for Best Horror Short Story. The Aurealis Awards are Australia’s national literary awards for speculative fiction and are decided upon by a panel of judges.

This is the second time I’ve been shortlisted for an Aurealis, the first being for my 2013 fantasy short story The Touch of The Taniwha. It might sound trite, but is absolutely true that I’m honoured simply to be considered alongside such talented and accomplished writers.
