Narrelle spies an award

Walking Shadows by our very own Narrelle M Harris has made the shortlist for the Best Long Fiction category of the annual Chronos Awards.

The Continuum Foundation – which hosts Melbourne's annual Continuum specfic and pop culture convention – announced the shortlist ballot for the Chronos Awards for fiction published in 2012.

The Chronos is awarded for excellence in Victorian Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror.

We are thrilled beyond measure for Narrelle, her Melbourne vampire Gary and his geek-librarian bff, Lissa.

We of course congratulate her wonderfully talented competition: Felicity Dowker for Bread and Circuses (Ticonderoga Publications); Jason Nahrung for Salvage (Twelfth Planet Press); Year’s Best Australian Fantasy & Horror 2011 edited by Liz Grzyb and Talie Helene (Ticonderoga Publications); and Dyson’s Drop by Paul Collins (Ford Street Publishing).

Voting for the Chronos Awards is open to Continuum members – aka anyone who registers to attend the convention (highly recommended btw - it is great fun).

If you are not a member of Continuum 9 but wish to vote for the Chronos Awards, a voting membership is available from the Continuum Foundation for $5. If you are interested in obtaining a voting membership or would like more info about the award or Continuum 9, skip on over to their website, here.

The award will be announced at Continuum 9 - June 7-10.
