It’s that time of year again. The BSFA Award nominations are out.
The full lists can be found here.
The fiction nominees are:-
Cyber Circus by Kim Lakin-Smith (Newcon Press)
Embassytown by China MiÃ©ville (Macmillan)
The Islanders by Christopher Priest (Gollancz)
By Light Alone by Adam Roberts (Gollancz)
Osama by Lavie Tidhar (PS Publishing)
Of which I have (so far) read one.
Best Short Fiction:-
The Silver Wind by Nina Allan (Interzone 233, TTA Press)
The Copenhagen Interpretation by Paul Cornell (Asimovâs, July)
Afterbirth by Kameron Hurley (Kameron Hurleyâs own website)
Covehithe by China MiÃ©ville (The Guardian)
Of Dawn by Al Robertson (Interzone 235, TTA Press)
I have read none of these as yet but only The Copenhagen Interpretation is not available online via the BSFA page linked to above. Presumably the booklet of nominated stories that the BSFA has produced for the past two years will be repeated this time around, too.
