Our congrats to Ms. Leckie for the win.

What do you think of this result?  Ancillary Sword is making a splash, though not yet as big as Justice.  It may be time for a new mantlepiece in the Leckie household to hold all these new awards.

Ancillary Justice Ack-Ack Macaque

The 2013 BSFA Award winners were announced at a ceremony last night at the 65th Eastercon at the Crowne Plaza, Glasgow.  In the Best Novel category we have a tie between Ann Leckie’s Ancillary Justice and Gareth L. Powell’s Ack_Ack Macaque.  Our congrats to both on the shared win.  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?
