However,

both Jonathan and the Alien Onions are recommending that you buy Tender Morsels for your nearest and dearest this Christmas.

And today the finalists for the Aurealis Awards were announced, and Tender Morsels is up there for the Best Fantasy Novel, together with Alison Goodman's The Two Pearls of Wisdom, Sylvia Kelso's Amberlight, Juliet Marillier's Heir to Sevenwaters and Karen Miller(hi Karen - yee-haw!)'s The Riven Kingdom.

Also...also...the alien-prostitute story I wrote for Jack Dann's Dreaming Again, 'The Fifth Star in the Southern Cross' is up for the Best SF Short Story Aurealis. And my mates on that list are Simon Brown, Nathan Burrage (go, Nathan!), Trent Jamieson (the thrice-finalised) and Tansy Rayner Roberts, who named her daughter after the Aurealises and is now being rewarded with the first of many shortlistings.

Congratulations, everyone! We're all over here.

Clink!

Alien-prostitute-Margo-sf!

*Is reminded to move Dreaming Again up in the to-be-read pile.*
*Realises to-be-read pile is two teetering stacks of books already on desk on either side of laptop. Damn.*

Still, looking forward to it! I'm afraid Tender Morsels is also still in the to-be-read pile. My girlfriend is aghast at the fact that my unread bookshelf is now too full, hence the stacks-on-desk situation. Argh!

I couldn't wait till Christmas to read Tender Morsels. Awesome read from start to finish. I can easily say the best I've read all year. I can't wait to read your next novel.
