The discovery earlier today that my SF trilogy The Sigil has been nominated in the ‘Best Novel’ category of the British Science Fiction Association awards cheered an otherwise dull afternoon, quite. I believe that this is for the longlist, and nominations are still open. The shortlist will emerge on 14 January 2013.
So far I am in mighty company – the list includes Empty Space by M. John Harrison; Ison of the Isles by Carolyn Ives Gilman; Intrusion by Ken Macleod; Channelskin by Jeff Noon, and (I Am Not Worthy) 2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson.
Posted you keep I will.
Cool Yule, Y’All.
UPDATE 18 January 2013: I didn’t make the cut. Boo. Here is the final shortlist.
