Honourable Mention in Best Horror of the Year Vol. 1

Just learnt that my Australian Horror Writers Association competition winning short story "Homo Canis" that was later published in 2008 Award Winning Australian Writing has received an honourable mention in Ellen Datlow's Best Horror of the Years Vol.1. It is always nice to have one's work recognised in a professional medium.

See the complete list of honourable mentions here, which I was pleased to see included stories from Cody Goodfellow, C.J. Henderson, William Jones, Jason Nahrung and D.L. Snell. Also congratulations to Charles Black for so many honourable mentions for stories in his Black Book of Horror series.

Special congratulations to Kirstyn McDermott who had her story "Painlessness" reprinted, which is much better than an honourable mention.
