Ditmar Awards 2009 finalists

This is another Australian sf award (other I know of is Aurealis). Official site takes long to load; their list is replicated by HorrorScope & Ellen Datlow, among others.

Has two short fiction categories - short stories & novellas. Later apparently includes novelettes too, but I haven't checked their word count limits.

None of the short fiction nominees appear to be online. Also, looking at the frequency of words like "magic", "dark", "creeping", "angel", "curse" in titles of stories or publications they appeared in, I guess the focus is more on horror & fantasy than science fiction.
