Allen & Unwin's adventures in Indieland

Beautiful shortlist, so full of please
voted by the hot Indies,
For who such greatness, could resist?
Shortlist of the Indies, beautiful list.

And in the Children's category:

The Convent by Maureen McCarthy 

Sea Hearts by Margo Lanagan 

Unforgotten by Tohby Riddle

Congratulations, Maureen, Margo and Tohby! 
And also to everyone else on the lovely shortlist.

How doth the little editor,
celebrate this news,
and roll around the office floor
or with her peers enthuse.

How humbly she seems to grin
how neatly spreads her pens
and welcomes all the shortlists in.
then quickly tells her friends.

(With apologies to Lewis Carroll.)
