We'd like to give Lisa L Hannett our hugest congratulations on winning not one, but two Aurealis Awards at the ceremony in Sydney last night.
We were absolutely ecstatic when Lisa's fantastic debut collection, Bluegrass Symphony, was announced by Cat Sparks as the winner of Best Collected Work.
We were then completely euphoric when Lisa's story, "The Short Go: A Future in Eight Seconds", from Bluegrass Symphony tied with Paul Haines' "The Past is a Bridge Left Burnt" for the Best Horror Short Story Award, with the award presented by the wonderful Kirstyn McDermott.
We've obviously felt for some time that Lisa L Hannett is an amazing talent, and her collection a stunning work, full of outstanding stories. We're incredibly proud of this book, and would sincerely like to thank Lisa for trusting us with her unique creative vision, and offer our congratulations on her success.
