The Judges

Jane Routley

Fantasy and Science Fiction writer Jane Routley has published 6 books and won two Aurealis Awards for Best Fantasy Novel.  Her short stories have been widely anthologized and read on the ABC.  She has had a variety of careers, including fruit picker and occult librarian and she lived in Germany and Denmark for a decade.

Despite years of encountering “things that cannot, nay, must not be described” in Call of Cthulhu, she is not (yet) insane.  Honest.
