Continuum 6 – 26-28 February 2010
is an annual speculative fiction convention held in Melbourne.
As of 2009 these conventions began to host the Chronos awards,
honoring Victorian writers and artists for achievements
in speculative fiction. In 2010, Continuum 6 hosted the
second annual Chronos Awards.
Gamers' Quest won the Chronos Award for short
fiction. The division between short and long fiction is
40,000 words, so although Gamers' Quest is a book,
it is only 35,000 and therefore in the short fiction category.
The Chronos Awards ceremony was held on the Friday evening
of the convention and was followed by a Ford Street Publishing
event. Publisher Paul Collins introduced four of Ford Street's
authors — Sean McMullen, Sue Bursztynski, George Ivanoff
and Foz Meadows — after which, author Lucy Sussex
launched the latest Ford Street book, Solace & Grief
by Foz Meadows. The event concluded with a book signing.
