Is there no stopping the man? The winners of the British Science Fiction Association Awards were announced on Easter Sunday, at he 54th UK National Science Fiction Convention. The Winner for Best Novel of 2002? None other than Christopher Priest for his 'The Separation', published by Scribner.
The winners of the British Science Fiction Association Awards were announced on Easter Sunday, 20th April 2003, at Seacon '03, the 54th UK National Easter Science Fiction Convention, at the Hanover International in Hinckley, Leicestershire.
The awards were presented at a ceremony hosted by ex-editor of things SF, John Jarrold.
The winners were voted on by members of the BSFA and by members of the Eastercon.
The winner of the BSFA Award for Best Novel of 2002 - presented by Christopher Evans - was Christopher Priest, for 'The Separation', published by Scribner.
Given he's just picked up the Arthur C Clarke Award for the same novel this year, you wonder how Priest is going to top the double? Surely the Bookers aren't going to be looking in his direction too.
The winner of the BSFA Award for Best Short Fiction of 2002 - presented by Jon Courtenay Grimwood - was Neil Gaiman, for 'Coraline', published by Bloomsbury.
The award was accepted on Neil's behalf by Chris Bell.
The winner of the BSFA Award for Best Artwork of 2002 - presented by Christopher Moore - was Dominic Harman, for his Interzone 179 cover.
The winner of the BSFA Award for Best Related Publication of 2002 - presented by Ken Macleod - was David Langford, for his introduction to 'Maps: the Uncollected John Sladek', published by Big Engine.
Nominations for the 2003 Awards (which will be presented at the 2004 Eastercon, Concourse, in Blackpool from 9th to 12th April 2004) are now being accepted.
