The SD Harvey Short Story category is a new award this year.  The details of the award, and SD Harvey are given on The Crime Writers of Australia website. (Seems you have to start your story's title with an "F" to get nominated this year.)

But seriously, the awards will be presented during the Melbourne Writers' Festival, on Friday 28th August at 7:00pm.  The venue: Festival Club, Australian Centre for the Moving Image on Flinders Street.  The event is free, so be early, find a spot by the bar and make friends with a brew or two. I'll be the ugly one down the back.
