This time it’s Daughters of Earth1 on the British Science Fiction Association‘s non-fiction shortlist. Let there be w00ting! Here’s the other nominees:
And the nicest thing? There’s not going to be an individual winner. They’re calling it the BSFA’s non-fiction recommended reading list. And the BSFA membership won’t be voting on it. Frankly, I find that much less stressful. No getting your hopes up for a win. And looking at that shortlist, I had buckley’s. Julie’s Tiptree bio is not only the best book on that list, it’s the best book about science fiction in a very very long while.
You can find the full list of nominees here. I’m especially chuffed at Margo Lanagan getting another nod. Yay Margo!
Nah. I can think of gazillions of wonderful books that have slid under the award radar. I’m very fortunate that mine haven’t. It’s good to remind myself that like everying in publishing award nominations are mostly just luck. [↩]

In the unlikely event it comes to that, we’ll dream up some new awards for you.

Tee hee, David. That’s so sweet of you, but don’t you think there are enough awards as it is?

well, that’s not to say we can’t get rid of some of the other ones to make room.
