Multiple-time BCS author Ian McHugh’s new short fiction collection Angel Dust was a finalist for the Aurealis Award for Best Collection.
Congratulations! The Aurealis Awards recognise the best Australian science fiction, fantasy, and horror of the year. Past winners in the Best Fantasy Short Fiction category include Christopher Green’s story “Father’s Kill” from BCS #24 and podcast BCS 022, which won in 2009.
Angel Dust includes two BCS stories, “Cold, Cold War” from BCS #123 (a past Aurealis finalist for Best Fantasy Short Fiction) and “Red Dirt” from BCS #58. However, “Songdogs” from BCS #27 appears in the new BCS anthology Ceaseless West: Weird Western Stories from Beneath Ceaseless Skies.
