This week the long list of the 2010 British Fantasy Awards has been announced. The awards include categories such as Best Novel, Best Novella, Best Short Story, Best Anthology, Best Collection, Best Small Press, Best Comic/Graphic Novel, Best Artist, Best Non-Fiction, Best Magazine, Best Television and Best Film, but also the Karl Edward Wagner Award and the Sydney J. Bounds Best Newcomer Award not present on this long list due to a different voting procedure. The long list includes the works recommended for the British Fantasy Awards and which will be voted by the members of BFS and FantasyCon from this month until May, with the shortlist of nominees due to be announced in June and the winners of the British Fantasy Awards at the FantasyCon 2010, that will take place between 17th and 19th of September at the Britannia Hotel in Nottingham. There are many titles I liked on that long list, but also many authors and works that I didn’t know about until I read the list. You can find the full list of recommended titles at the British Fantasy Society website.
