Review of the Aurealis Award Finalists.

My review of the fifteen short story finalists in the science fiction, fantasy, and horror categories of the Aurealis Award is up at Strange Horizons (sh_reviews). It's called 'Scalpels and Surgical Masks: A Review of the Aurealis Awards Short Fiction Finalists' which is a bit of a mouthful, I know, but there you go. So, go and read, and digest, and speak.

But speak at my board and not here, because I'm turning comments off. I'm doing this simply because if, on the odd side the review generates the kind of traffic the last mention of the Aurealis Awards did, then livejournal's commenting system will collapse comments and make it difficult to follow. I've got a board, so, use the board. There is also a comments thread on the actual review.

I heard today that something close to three quarters of the eligible fiction for these awards was not considered. Food for thought that, yeah?
