We are very pleased to let you know that we have been working with the Best Short Fiction nominated authors and publishers to bring members the now traditional BSFA Awards booklet. We are endeavouring to get this finalised as soon as possible in order to give members as much advance reading time as possible. The idea behind the booklet was to allow for fair representation of those stories that were no longer commercially available in order to encourage participation in this category. In the past, many authors and publishers of works that were still commercially available have kindly also allowed us to reproduce their work in the same booklet in order to make it more convenient for our members to access their work for the purposes of voting. More recently, we have also been able to include extracts of work from the Best Non-fiction category. Please note that we cannot always guarantee that the work will be made available to us to use, but this year we will very happily be able to provide a booklet for members.
The BSFA Awards, along with other honours and prizes, can be your gateway to discovering great new fiction, non-fiction and artwork: we would always encourage our members to support the creators where they can by buying their books.
