Congratulations to Carrie Vaughn, whose wonderful story “Amaryllis” took out the tough competition at the 2011 WSFA Small Press Awards in Washington overnight. Although RJ Astruc’s story “Enid and the Prince”, from Worlds Next Door, did not get the gong, it was fantastic to see it shortlisted beside such amazing works. Well done RJ!

Ellen Datlow, an internationally acclaimed editor from the US, has given “New Rat in Town” by Kaaron Warren an Honourable Mention in her yearly round up of horror stories. Very exciting!
Ellen is Guest of Honour at Swancon in Perth over Easter this year, and produces some very fine anthologies – especially relevant here are her anthologies that compile fairy tale retellings. Troll’s Eye View was a recent one (with Terri Windling) that I loved – retelling fairytales from the villain’s perspective!
