Indie Award 2011: Shortlist

As I described in an earlier blog the Indie Award is chosen by independent Australian booksellers.  There are four categories, with a winner in each category to be voted upon by the member booksellers.  There will then be an overall Book of the year selected.

The short list has now been announced to the public and is as follows.

Debut Fiction:

The Old School by PM Newton

Rocks in the Belly by Jon Bauer

Book of Lost Threads by Tess Evans

The Legacy by Kirsten Tranter


Bereft by Chris Womersley

That Deadman Dance by Kim Scott

Indelible Ink by Fiona McGregor

When Colts Ran by Roger McDonald


How to Make Gravy by Paul Kelly

The Happiest Refugee by Ahn Do

The Well at the World’s End by A J Mackinnon

Street Fight in Naples by Peter Robb


The Very Bad Book by Andy Griffiths

The Legend of the Golden Snail by Graeme Base

Mirror by Jeannie Baker

The Keepers Book 1: Museum of Thieves by Lian Tanner

When the winners of each category are announced and from that the overall winner chosen, we will blog again.
