Judging the Aurealis Awards was made difficult by the tedious solicitation of review material (a chore imposed at our expense) and by the poor standard of fiction.
Recently the identities of the judges has remained secret, even between the SF, Fantasy and horror panels. Totally insane. And the bickering between Aurealis and Eidolon is just plain funny.
Yes, it's time Skintomb got into the awards caper. Here are my official pics for 1997. Note: this is a one-off affair - it dies with the magazine.
