On Top, Down Under

Just six weeks after the Crime Writers’ Association of Australia presented its longlist of contenders for the 2012 Ned Kelly Awards (the “Neddies”), it has now announced the finalists for those commendations in three categories. They are:

Best Fiction:
The Life, by Malcolm Knox (Allen & Unwin)
Chelsea Mansions, by Barry Maitland (Allen & Unwin)
Pig Boy, by J.C. Burke (Random House)

Best First Fiction:
The Courier’s New Bicycle, by Kim Westwood (HarperCollins)
The Cartographer, by Peter Twohig (HarperCollins)
When We Have Wings, by Claire Corbett (Allen & Unwin)

Best True Crime:
Cold Case Files, by Liz Porter (Pan Macmillan)
Call Me Cruel, by Michael Duffy (Allen & Unwin)
Sins of the Father, by Eamonn Duff (Allen & Unwin)

The winners of these prizes--as well as the annual S.D. Harvey Short Story Award--are expected to be announced during the 2012 Melbourne Writers Festival (August 23-September 2).
