BSFA Awards 2016

The 2016 BSFA awards have been announced. They are:

Best Novel

  • Dave Hutchinson – Europe in Winter (Solaris)

Best Short Fiction

  • Jaine Fenn – Liberty Bird (Now We Are Ten, NewCon Press)

Best Non-Fiction

Best Artwork

The interesting thing is that it’s not big names in publishing that are included here (e.g. no Gollancz or Interzone), but what I call the top of intermediate publishers (some may disagree with my definition).

Dave Hutchinson had been tipped for a win ever since the first of his series Europe in Autumn came out. It’s nice to see he’s finally achieved it.

The interesting thing is that after last year’s winners the awards seem to have swung towards the more science end of science fiction. Whether this is just coincidence or part of a trend remains to be seen.
