2006 Commonwealth Writers' Prize

Strange goings-on...

The Literary Saloon alerted us to the presence of the announcement of the shortlisted novels for the 2006 Commonwealth Writers' prize. Oddly enough, this announcement is over on the Commonwealth Foundation page, rather than the Commonwealth Writers' Prize page where you'd really expect it to appear.

Anyway, it's there and available, along with the previously advised note that the regional winners will be announced on February 6. So how come "The Age" today announces the winners of the South-East Asia and South Pacific region, both best novel and best first book? And how is it that their "winner" of the best book award wasn't even shortlisted?

Looks like some wires have been well and truly crossed here.
