The ceremony was livestreamed by Chad Dixon, and can be seen on his Periscope channel here. Update: Now also available on YouTube!
For our last meeting just before Easter, Aliette de Bodard (the unsuspecting double BSFA-Award winner of the very near future) was interviewed by Edward Cox and here they are, then.
If you missed it, the marvellous Chad Dixon has recorded the interview for you which you can listen to as and MP3 audiofile or even watch via #Periscope here. Don’t forget to follow Chad via Twitter on @lapswood8 to pick up the live stream of the next interview, which will be Tessa Farmer in conversation with Mark Pilkington on April 20th.
Following the announcement of the BSFA Awards I thought I would share my pictures with you of the happy winners, receiving their trophies at Mancunicon, at Manchester Deansgate’s Hilton hotel last week. This was quite special, as Aliette de Bodard became the first person to win both the fiction awards in the same year. Lucky for Jim Burns, too, as this was his thirteenth win in the Best Artwork category. And Adam Roberts was the Best Non-Fiction winner, having previously won the Best Novel Award for 2012 for Jack Glass.
You can read David Barnett’s resultant article in The Guardian here.
