The full list of winners, including the citation for the posthumous award to Hugh Cook, is here:
Congratulations to all the winners!
From a personal perspective, it was great to see two awards (Best Collected Work and Best Cover) go to Lost in the Museum, the 2014 anthology which includes my story “The Big Baby”. Here’s more about the anthology:
I mentioned in a previous post that I have a story, “The Big Baby”, in the recently published anthology Lost in the Museum, which has just received an excellent review by Lee Murray in the widely-read Beattie’s Book Blog.
Lost in the Museum is now available in bookshops, including The Children’s Bookstore in Kilbirnie, Unity Books, and Marsden Books in Karori (Wellington) and Retrospace (Auckland). The ISBN is 978-0-473-28320-9, which will help you to order it from other bookshops.
Lost in the Museum is also available from Amazon as a Kindle ebook: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KTV5K0U
