(snurched from Jason Fischer)
Looks like it’s time for Ditmar voting again. As this is the year of AussieCon4, it’s a great chance to showcase some antipodean talent.
Tehani Wessely is compiling a list, checking it twice, for eligible Aussies – it lives here https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AhAUWipZqrNWdFljalBZWmJwSnc1cTJVT2s0ZnlMLVE&hl=en_GB#gid=0
It also seems I have four stories eligible:
Light as Mist, Heavy as Hope
The Girl with No Hands
Other awesome eligibles include LL (Lisa Hannett), Jason Fischer, Peter Ball, Cat Sparks, Chris Greene, Deborah Biancotti, Felicity Dowker, Dirk Flinthart, Alan, Baxter, Garth Nix, Kirstyn McDermott, Gillian Polack, Kaaron Warren, Laura Goodin, Jenny Blackford, Lee Battersby, Kathleen Jennings, Lezli Robyn (also a Campbell nominee this year), Sean Williams, Steph Campisi, Tansy Rayner Roberts, Thoraiya Dyer, and Trent Jamieson.
Nominations can be made here http://ditmars.sf.org.au/2010/nominations.html and the rules live here http://wiki.sf.org.au/2010_Ditmar_eligibility_list
Actually at least 5 of your stories are eligible.
The Chrysanthemum Bride is eligible as well.
Tehani’s list was complied from the Aurealis Award list, which had a November cutoff point for eligibility, whereas the Ditmars include all of 2009.
My numbers story was in the same situation. 🙂
And your New Ceres Nights story
Ah. Then perchance ‘Sister, Sister’ is also eligible?
