Congratulations to all those who won the BSFA Awards for work produced in 2011!
- Best Non-Fiction: The SF Encyclopedia, third edition (beta), edited by John Clute, Peter Nicholls, David Langford and Graham Sleight.
- Best Artwork: Cover of Ian Whates’s The Noise Revealed by Dominic Harman (Solaris)
- Best Short Fiction: “The Copenhagen Interpretation” by Paul Cornell (Asimov’s, July)
- Best Novel published in Britain: The Islanders by Christopher Priest (Gollancz)
At Eastercon, as well as at four other conventions held that same weekend, the Hugo shortlists were announced. The BSFA Award winners for best non-fiction and best short fiction both made that ballot, so their fans will have another opportunity to vote for them, should they wish!
Gollancz did extremely well this year, since they host/publish The SF Encyclopedia as well as The Islanders.
P.S. Please see the BSFA’s apology for the way the awards ceremony worked out.
And lastly, this information has appeared to be sadly missing from this site since the awards were announced. It was in fact here, but only visible from certain pages. Our apologies for that.
