Well, I'm just horrified. Aghast. Amazed. Some other A words. Apparently, I might not be nominated. Apparently, it could be that I was just commended, and not in the final five selection at all.
There is no Aurealis nomination for 'Dr Who (or the Day I Learnt to Love Tom Baker)', the little comedy story that found its way into the horror category. It didn't sound right at the time, and so now, it has been revealed that there was a mistake, and apparently, due to an inability to count when sending out emails, I was incorrectly informed. The head of the Aurealis Award committee, Jason Nahrung, is quite apologetic about it and that's all very nice, I guess, but in the end, my jaded and cynical opinion about awards being meaningless has been rewarded.
