Australian Winner – British Fantasy Awards

British Fantasy Awards 2021

Kathleen Jennings has won the Best Newcomer category in the 2021 British Fantasy Awards for her Australian gothic novel Flyaway (Picador).

Jennings’ debut novel, chosen out of a shortlist of six, weaves magic and mystery into an Australian setting, following a young woman living in a dwindling town as she searches for her missing father and brothers.

Jennings is the first Australian to win Best Newcomer and the third Australian to win a British Fantasy Award in the awards’ 50-year history.

Flyaway was shortlisted for the 2021 Courier-Mail People’s Choice Queensland Book of the Year, and was a finalist in the 2021 World Fantasy Awards and 2021 IAFA Crawford Award.
