Ditmar Nominations Are Out

Congratulations to all who have been nominated.

The complete list is here but I'm especially pleased to see Robert Hood and Margo Lanagan, tutors at Clarion South 2007, nominated in several places, and Peter M. Ball and Jason Fisher, who were among the Clarion South 2007 contingent, nominated in Best New Talent.

I hope I'll be forgiven a little parochial but there is a strong Western Australian representation too including in Best Novel section Hal Spacejock: No Free Lunch Simon Haynes, Best Collected Work 2012 ed. Alisa Krasnostein and Ben Payne, Black: Australian Dark Culture Magazine ed. Angela Challis (also nominated for Best Achievement) and The Starry Rift ed. Jonathan Strahan and Shane Jiraiya Cummings and Grant Watson both nominated in William Atheling Jr Award for Criticism or Review.
