What do you think about the BSFA awards shortlist?

So no sooner does one event sail under the bridge (yesterday’s Writing Industries Conference went swimmingly, more details tomorrow perhaps) than another comes bobbing along on the white water rapids of life. I will be at the next meeting of the British Science Fiction Association on Wednesday 24th March, and will be discussing the shortlist for the BSFA Awards along with Donna Scott and Sarah Pinborough. The meeting is at the Antelope Tavern in Sloan Square, London from 7pm. (I’m told things start swinging from 5pm onwards however.) If you are nearby then stop in and say hello.

In the mean time, what do you think about the BSFA awards shortlist? I’d like to know.

  1. Awards shortlists make me realize how much good fiction is out there, and how little I’ve read. I’m still working through the pile of books I bought at WFC2009.

    On the BSFA shortlist I’ve read exactly 0. And not because of a bias against UK writers.
