The Dervish House

The winners for the 2010 British Science Fiction Association Awards have been announced at Eastercon in Birmingham, UK.  They are:

  • Novel: The Dervish House, Ian McDonald (Gollancz)
  • Short Fiction:The Shipmaker”, Aliette de Bodard (Interzone 231, TTA Press)
  • Art: The cover of Zoo City, Joey Hi-Fi (Angry Robot)
  • Non Fiction: “Blogging the Hugos: Decline”, Paul Kincaid (Big Other)

Congratulations to Ian McDonald on the win and to all the nominees.

I think anytime Ian McDonald is in the running he’s got to be considered a front-runner so this is not much of a surprise. What do you think of the result? What book were you pulling for?

Thanks to Science Fiction Awards Watch for the info.

Expected as much. Glad Ian McDonald gets the recognition he deserves across the Atlantic. It’s a shame he got snubbed from the Nebula shortlist.

Agreed @Courtney! I do feel a hint of disappointment for "Zoo City" not winning, but that is mainly because of my South African bias :)

Haven’t checked out Zoo City yet, but all I’ve heard are good things about it.
