The 28th Clarke Awards shortlist has just been announced. Established in 1987 with a grant given by Sir Arthur C Clarke, the award is given for the best science fiction novel first published in the United Kingdom during the previous year. The winner’s roster is essentially a must-read of contemporary science fiction, starting with the first winner, Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.
The award was given out at a ceremony (now open to the public too, which is very nice) at landmark London bookstore Foyles this evening, after a toast to the memory of Sir Arthur C Clarke. The judges were Ian Whates, British Science Fiction Association, David Gullen, British Science Fiction Association, Andrew McKie, Science Fiction Foundation, Liz Bourke, Science Fiction Foundation and Leila Abu El Hawa, Sci-Fi-London film festival, with Andrew M. Butler representing the Arthur C. Clarke Award in a non-voting role as the Chair of the Judges.
