A huge and slightly belated congratulations to the incredible Kathleen Jennings on her recent Ditmar win for the cover artwork of Midnight and Moonshine, the much lauded collection by Lisa L. Hannett and Angela Slatter.
Kathleen's fabulous cover won the Best Professional Artwork Ditmar at the recent Australian National SF Convention, held in Canberra.
Midnight and Moonshine has picked up a number of accolades including a Publishers Weekly Starred Review and making the Locus Recommended Reading List, and we're really pleased Kathleen's cover has added to this list.
It's been a wonderfully busy month for us, and we're sorry we didn't get to highlighting this tremendous achievement sooner. It's the first Ditmar Award we've been associated with since 2008.
Want to find out what all the fuss is about Midnight and Moonshine? You can buy either of its editions from us at indiebooksonline or at just about any online good bookshop: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Book Depository, just to name a few.

Aurealis-winner Wilkins (Giants of the Frost) compiles five novellas (three reprinted, two original) in this strong collection.

Readers looking for random acts of kindness would do well to look elsewhere; fans of beautifully staged scenes of despair will find a wealth of them here.
