Saturday night saw the announcement of the 2007 Aurealis Awards – the awards for Australian science fiction, fantasy and horror.
David Kowalski’s The Company of the Dead took out both Best Science Fiction Novel, and the Golden Aurealis Award For Best Novel (This is the second year in a row that a first-timer has taken both of these awards. Last year’s went to Will Elliot, for The Pilo Family Circus).
Other prize-winners include Cat Sparks, Garth Nix, Lian Hearn and Kate Forsyth. Congratulations!
