With the blessing of the executor of Sara Douglass’s estate, the Aurealis Awards is very pleased to introduce the Sara Douglass Book Series Award.

This Award is named for one of Australia’s best known speculative fiction writers. Sara Douglass was the flagship author of the HarperVoyager Australian line, which launched the careers of many of our most popular writers, and paved the way for the vibrant and diverse speculative fiction scene Australia has today. Sara’s contribution to the state of speculative fiction in Australia cannot be underestimated, and we are proud to commemorate her in this Award.



Entries to this Award will open at the same time as the rest of the Aurealis Awards but will close on August 31, to permit the judging panel sufficient time to consider the number of entries anticipated. Please consider following us on Twitter, Facebook or by RSS to stay informed about forthcoming announcements.

Please contact the Judging Co-ordinator if you have any queries about the Sara Douglass Book Series Award.
