Kirsten - Many, many congrats on the nomination. I'm pretty sure that makes you the first Australian ever to be nominated in the category!

Many thanks, guys! It's a very, very big honour to be nominated.

Jonathan: If I am really the first Aussie to be up for this one, I hope there'll be plenty more of us in the future!

Jeff: 'And the winner was....Beetle Bomb!'

I don't think I can make it to WFC, but if any other Aussies who may be reading this, particularly Sydney and Canberra folk, are thinking of going, Air Tahiti Nui are currently doing Sydney to LA for $1545 in October. Tahiti stopover, anyone...? Check Flight Centre for details.

Can I stop telling you how good this book is now? No, I suspect that it is my delight to bear for a long while yet. Congratulations again. Now I know that you haven't listened to me much in the past, but the big fantasy thing seems to be kind of dying out in Australian market place. Have you thought about chick lit? It's booming in Brisbane. And all you need to do is write a story about how you as a 'chick' wanted to write a deep dark fantasy story but your boyfriend and parents hated it and, well, you get the rest... Me you and Trent could get together and write it in afternoon.

BTW The new cleaned up cut of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is supposed to be out in Oz this month. I looked for it in Traget on the weekend but failed to find it.

Whoo Hoo Hoo Whooraroo....Duh, duh, duh, duh...Wah, bubba, wah, bubba wah,dadda, da, dada, da, dadad! Tring la a tring...

Um, you need to have the music in your head.

Adios

Geoffrey

Jonathan,
Peter Carey's Illywhacker was a World Fantasy Award nominee for best novel in 1986. I believe that was the only other Australian WFA novel nomination.

Ellen: Thanks, and back at ya!

Roger: Then I'm in good company...

Rajan: Thank you! Nice to meet you!

Trent: However good it is, you know a chunk of the credit belongs to you!

Geoff: I'd have said that was Hendrix, except for the 'tring la a tring' at the end. So I'm stumped. One of the main perpetrators of chick lit seems to be Kathy Lette, who of course was the co-writer of Puberty Blues, which I consider to be the Great Australian Novel...
I'm looking forward to the new G, B & U. There are supposed to be extra scenes in it, aren't there?

Absolutely correct Kathy Lette is the Tolkien of Australia - having inspired so many to emulate.

Jason and Luis, many thanks!

Geoff - Hobbits, Grommets...I see the connection! (And isn't there a surfing gear company called Balin?)

Don't know if you heard already but "Maldoror Abroad" from Album Zutique made it onto the HMs for Year's Best Fantasy and Horror #17. Courtesy of Cat Sparks, I've posted the full list of Aussie stories that made it onto the list on my own bulletin board which is just a few levels down from yours.

Yes, "The Grommet" sponsored by Balin boards, I can see it now.
