Mansfield with Monsters wins Sir Julius Vogel Award!

Mansfield with Monsters was awarded a shiny SJV award for Best Collected Work. Matt Cowens and I won a joint award for Best New Talent. Needless to say much astonished delight, squealing joy and gluttonous celebrations have been had in the Cowens household.

Squidy was Matt's date for the SJV awards.

The shiny SJV trophy. Pretty.

Me with my paws on the award.I did regretfully have to forego sleeping with it. It's very pointy and a bit of a bedtime hazard. I wonder if there are any plushy awards for people that want to snuggle their trophies?

Thanks so much to everyone who voted for Mansfield with Monsters. It's very special and happy-making. Congratulations to all the other winners and nominees. It was an impressive line-up and just be nominated amongst so many brilliant writers was a thrill and an honour.

A special thanks also to our excellent publisher Steam Press who won a much-deserved SJV award for services to Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror.

Thanks Karen. You're right, Squidy is very produ, bordering on smug actually :-)

Thanks Dale. A Lovecraftian novella of Katherine Mansfield's At the Bay is next for the Cowens/Cowens duo.
