Many award announcements this week and since this week-end another award I follow announced its winners, please bear with me for another such a post. The other reason that made me post a third consecutive award feature is that at the 2009 BSFA Awards two of the winners are among my favorites too, China Miéville’s novel “The City & The City”, an excellent novel and one of the best I read lately (reviewed here) and Stephen Martiniere for the cover artwork of Ian McDonald’s “Desolation Road” and which was one of my favorite covers of 2009.
Best Novel: “The City & The City” by China Miéville
Best Short Fiction: “The Beloved Time of Their Lives” by Ian Watson and Roberto Quaglia (The Beloved of My Beloved)
Best Non-Fiction: “Mutant Popcorn” by Nick Lowe (Interzone)
Best Artwork: Stephen Martiniere for the cover of “Desolation Road” by Ian McDonald (Pyr)
Congratulations to all the winners!
