The British Science Fiction Association Awards were given out at this weekend's Eastercon in London. I'm very happy to hear that Ian McDonald's Brasylwas the winner in the novel category. Congratulations to Ian and to his editor at Gollancz, that man of impeccable tastes, the wonderful Simon Spanton!
(Ian also took the 2005 BSFA for River of Gods,and the 2006 short fiction award for "The Djinn's Wife," set in the world of River. Look for a collection of these future-India short stories, Cyberabad Days, in early '09.)
