The British Science Fiction Association held their annual awards ceremony April 14-17, 2017, at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole during “Innominate,” the 68th Eastercon in Birmingham, UK. The winners are as follows:
- Best Novel: Dave Hutchinson – Europe in Winter (Solaris)
- Best Shorter Fiction: Jaine Fenn – “Liberty Bird” (Now We Are Ten, NewCon Press)
- Best Non-Fiction: Geoff Ryman – 100 African Writers of SFF (Tor.com)
- Best Artwork: Sarah Anne Langton – Cover for Central Station by Lavie Tidhar (Tachyon Publications)
The BSFA Awards are based on a vote of association members and members of the British national science fiction convention Eastercon. In each category, the BSFA awards aim to recognize the most worthy examples in each category, promote science fiction as a genre, and most importantly, get people reading, discussing and enjoying all aspects of contemporary science fiction.
