Why I like the BSFA and Clarke shortlists

(Thanks to nwhyte for unintentionally reminding me to write this.)

I ended up not nominating for the BSFA awards because I forgot the deadline until a few days before and then caught a rather nasty cold (the second this month). Collapse )

And to finish with a comment I may return to - whatever differences there are between science fiction and fantasy, the shortlisted works (at least the ones I've read) would none of them be what they are without the heritage of both traditions.
