Nominations for the 2009 Chronos Awards are now open. The Chronos Awards recognise Victorian writers and fans, with the awards to be presented at Continuum 6: Future Tense.

Best Short Fiction

I didn't expect to attend the Aurealis Awards ceremony, but for obvious reasons, I'm now seriously considering it.
On top of last minute flights (which seem readily available, although I'm kicking myself for not being psychic and therefore not being able to book them earlier), I need to figure out possible accomodation. I'd only be staying the one night (Saturday 23rd Jan) and want something cheap but cockroachless and within reasonable distance of the Awards venue if at all possible ("reasonable distance" doesn't have to be walking distance, but preferably with the applicable cab fare coming in under $10,000).
I don't know the first thing about Brisbane or the AA's venue, so...help?!
