Have belatedly noticed that the juries for this year’s British Fantasy Awards have been officially announced, so now I can tell you – I’m a juror again, yay!
I was chuffed to be asked back again this year, but had to remember not to mention it before the official post went up. Which I then totally missed. Oops. In my defense, I forgot most things during May while I was finishing that last draft. No kitchen fires, but my head was so elsewhere that I wouldn’t have been surprised.
I’m on the jury for Best Small Press – which means a hell of a lot of reading, as we’re considering overall output from several small presses, as opposed to those namby-pamby Best Novel jurors who only have to decide between a handful of books 😉
I think the plan is to announce details of the nominees for all categories this Friday, at the British Fantasy Society open night in London.
More details of the other juries here, and I’ll try to remember to link to the nominee announcement once that’s out. Congrats in advance, everyone, and good luck!
Update: details of all shortlisted nominees are now up on the British Fantasy Society site.
