With the Aurealis Awards announced and the big surreal weekend of Brisbane being full o’ writers over, the AA judges have released their reports over on the Aurealis Awards website. Among the notes for the Fantasy Short Story I spotted the following:
Review of Honourable Mentions
Peter M. Ball, ‘The Last Great House Of Isla Tortuga’
‘The Last Great House Of Isla Tortuga’ is a thoroughly engaging story with crisp and enjoyable prose and vividly three dimensional characters. The reader becomes completely lost in the world described by the author.
Which is pretty cool, all up, ’cause I didn’t even know that the AA’s had honorable mentions.
