It’s that time of year – where New Zealand Speculative Fiction authors are looking to get their work nominated into the Sir Julius Vogel Awards.
Last year I was lucky enough to be nominated for one of my short stories, Frankie and the Netball Clone, and it was a real surprise and a thrill to see a children’s short story winning this prestigous award. So why not give your favourite NZ speculative author a thrill and nominate their work?
