For those that don't know, quite possibly 99.99% of the membership (percentage increases if we include guests and llama trainers), I'm one of the prelim judges for Australia's Shadows Awards this year. The Shadows are the jewel in the crown for dark genre writers Down Under. Anywise arriving in the post was an entry in the long fiction section, "Dark Corridors of Time" by Keith Williams. Unfort the newly published novel from Equilibrium Books has quotes from my site on the front cover and first page, see below Oops! Have made the coordinator of the Competition aware of a possible conflict of interest and am waiting to see what he thinks I should do. Clearly too late to step down but may have to with hold my call on this one. The long fiction section is going to one hell of a battle this year judging from the two entries I've read thus far, and there's some very big names in Aussie dark genre circles submitting later in the year.
