Big news this week that the issue of Midnight Echo I guest-edited – Midnight Echo Issue 17, is a nominee in the 2022 Australian Shadows Awards, in the Edited Works category!
Given this is my first time editing an anthology or magazine, I’m pretty chuffed the judges felt that ME17 was worthy of a nomination.
Even better one of the stories I selected for the issue, “The Tub”, by J Ashley-Smith, is a nominee in the Short Fiction category and I’m ecstatic for Joseph as well! It goes without saying that I’m also proud of all the other contributors to the issue!
I’ve been nominated in the Shadows three times before with my debut novel Hollow House and my novella The Eschatologist (now known as The Followers) being nominated in 2016, and my short story “The Bone Maiden” in 2015. So this latest makes four in four separate categories!
The winners of the 2022 Australian Shadows Awards will be announced at Asylum Fest in October.
