Locus Awards

The Locus Awards are run by "Locus" magazine (the major newsletter of the sf and fantasy fields), and this year's finalists have been announced.

Of special interest for Australian readers is the Best Young Adult shortlists which contains two Australina novels:

The Keys to the Kingdom: Sir Thursday, Garth Nix (Allen & Unwin; The Chicken House)
Magic Lessons, Justine Larbalestier (Penguin/Razorbill)
Spirits That Walk in Shadow, Nina Kiriki Hoffman (Viking)
Voices, Ursula K. Le Guin (Orion Children's; Harcourt)
Wintersmith, Terry Pratchett (Doubleday UK; HarperTempest)

Nix and Larbalestier are up against some heavy competition in Le Guin and Pratchett, but we wish them well. Winners in all categories will be announced at a dinner held at the Science Fiction Museum's Hall of Fame, in Seattle on June 16th.
