In addition to selecting the winner, each jury chooses an Honor List (previously called a “Short List”). The Honor List is a strong part of the award’s identity and is used by many professors as a guide to creating syllabi and by many readers as a recommended reading list.
The 2005 jury chose 6 works for the Honor List
Willful Creatures by Aimee Bender (Doubleday, 2005)
Wooden Bride by Margo Lanagan (Allen & Unwin, 2004)
Little Faces by Vonda N. McIntyre (SciFi.com, 2005)
