My Clarion South mates have done it again. Ellen Datlow has released her list of honorable mentions for Best Horror of the Year Volume One. On it are Lyn Battersby, Christopher Green and Michael Greenhut from my fellow students and Simon Brown, Margo Lanagan and Robert Hood who were among our tutors.
Being somewhat parochial, Western Australia has its mention as well with Lee Battersby, Lyn Battersby, Stephen Dedman, Cecily Scutt, Martin Livings and Ian McHugh. Ian no longer lives here but has to be claimed because he is also in the book itself.
There is, of course, a generous smattering of other Australians as well and for the complete list go to here where editormum has extracted and listed them all.
Everyone who is mentioned deserves special congratulations. They are in very good company.
