2011 Aurealis Award shortlist
March 20th, 2012
Excellent news – City of Lies has been shortlisted for the 2011 Aurealis Awards (fantasy and science fiction). This is the one that Museum of Thieves won last year, so it’s very exciting to be shortlisted again. But the competition is tough! Here’s the whole children’s novel shortlist. You’ll notice that my Australian publishers, Allen & Unwin, have four out of the five books – which is just as it should be, because they are such brilliant publishers to work with.
CHILDREN’S FICTION (told primarily through words)
The Outcasts by John Flanagan (Random House Australia)
The Paradise Trap by Catherine Jinks (Allen & Unwin)
“It Began with a Tingle” by Thalia Kalkapsakis (Headspinners, Allen & Unwin)
The Coming of the Whirlpool by Andrew McGahan (Allen & Unwin)
City of Lies by Lian Tanner (Allen & Unwin)
The winner will be announced on Saturday 12th May.
