The 2011 British Fantasy Society Award Shortlist has been announced. Then nominees for Best Novel are:
- Apartment 16 – Adam Nevill – Pan McMillan
- Demon Dance – Sam Stone – The House Of Murky Depths
- The Leaping – Tom Fletcher – Quercus
- Pretty Little Dead Things – Gary McMahon – Angry Robot
- The Silent Land – Graham Joyce – Gollancz
See the complete list on the BFS site.
So there does not seem to be much fantasy in the list… unless you’re calling this "Dark Fantasy" instead of Horror.
