In the Best Novel category the winner is Ann Leckie’s Ancillary Sword, the sequel to last year’s co-winner Ancillary Justice. To see the full results in all categories check out the official announcement on the BSFA website.

What do you think of this result? Ancillary Justice seems like it’s no surprise but what about Ack-Ack? The cover has always intrigued me – I mean, what’s not to love about a cigar-smoking, gun-toting chimpanzee airship pilot?
