Britain's Arthur C. Clarke Award

This Science/Speculative Fiction award is voted on by a small committee.

I got an invite to the presentation ceremony for this one - which will takes place on May 18th in the Science Museum in London - but I don't expect to be around.... perhaps next year!

Pashazade- Jon Courtenay Grimwood
Fallen Dragon - Peter F. Hamilton
Bold As Love- Gwyneth Jones
The Secret of Life - Paul McAuley
Mappa Mundi - Justina Robson
Passage- Connie Willis

I've linked to excerpts for most of these.

Although there are plenty of reviews out there, it would be interesting to see the views of fellow DVDTalkers....

[Time Flies!]

Looking at the list of past Clarke Award winners (above) I was pleasantly surprised to see that I had read 2/3 of them!<small>

</small>This year it is on May 17th and, again, it looks like I won't be taking up my invite! There's always 2004!

Anyway, here are the nominees:Recently several of these authors/novels already have won specialist awards for these and other books including the British SF Award and the James Tiptree and Philip K Dick awards. Capsule reviews and extracts for most of them can be found in a recent UK Guardian article.

I own both "Light" and "tYoRaS" but have yet to read them! I will certainly pick up the Miéville and the Priest and quite likely the Brin & Moon also.... maybe today, if they are in stock, as I have a book token that has been burning a hole in my wallet for ages!

</small>Well, what do you know? In the end I ordered them from Amazon.co.uk because none of the shops I visited stocked the Chris Priest title.

After over a fortnight they emailed me and said they were sending all bar the Priest which was out of print. And guess which title triumphed this Saturday!?

Maybe this latest award and the fact that his earlier novel The Prestige, which I believe our board founder has been reading, is about to be made into a film directed by Christopher "Memento" Nolan will result in The Separation being released in a mass-market paperback edition at an early date.

Who knows!?!

[Late again!]

The 18th Arthur C. Clarke Award has been won by Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson. The Award was announced at a ceremony at the English Heritage Lecture Theatre, London on Wednesday 12th May.

An interesting article I came across just recently suggesting that we look elsewhere this time for the "best" books of 2003:
The Clarke award is Britain's most important, and most prestigious SF award. It has had a hard year, shamefully turfed out by the Science Museum from its traditional slot and forced to hawk itself about for location and funds. It deserves our support. But, presumably for reasons unconnected to these circumstances, the committee has this year come up with a rather wayward shortlist. The books here are not hopeless, and several of them are worth reading, but better books than these were published in the genre in 2003.

To be particular: I was staggered that three titles had been left off the shortlist: Ian Macleod's extraordinary The Light Ages, certainly the best book of the year; Dan Simmons return-to-form Ilium, a sense-of-wonder masterpiece that shows SF can still amaze; Margaret Atwood's powerful, imaginative Oryx and Crake. (I wonder whether sour grapes flavoured Atwood's omission from the list, because she injured our genre-loving pudeur by denying that she writes science fiction? Hopefully not; because if that is the case, then the award is being given ad hominem, for authors who are 'in' with the committee rather than for the excellence of particular novels. Shouldn't it be novels being judged here, not novelists?)

Macleod, Simmons and Atwood produced, it seems to me, the standout sf novels of 2003, the books that have the greatest likelihood of being discussed in ten, or fifty, years; the books that demonstrate the greatest aesthetic achievement. But there are other novels that seem to me plain better, more important and more brilliantly done, than most on this year's list: Justina Robson's Natural History (Macmillan) tells a seemingly simple story in a gloriously knobbed and rusty fashion; Jeff Vandemeer's Veniss Underground (Tor) is not without flaws, but it achieves a fair proportion of its ambition, and since its ambition is enormous it achieves a great deal. I'm a little inhibited from adding Richard Morgan's barnstorming Broken Angels (Gollancz), James Lovegrove's subtle, rounded Untied Kingdom (Gollancz), or Roger Levy's brilliant Dark Heavens (Gollancz), because all three authors are friends of mine, and I don't want to appear to be plugging the works of friends (something of which reviewers of SF are too often guilty). But surely any objective judge would pick any of them over most of the titles on this shortlist: and MacLeod, Simmons and Atwood stand clear over all of them.
Those so minded can continue reading at the Infinity Plus site:

Mike Harrison snagged the 2007 Clarke Award with "Nova Swing"....
[....] his space-noir novel filled with gangsters, prostitutes and a large space-time hole.

The winning tale is a companion novel to Harrison's acclaimed space opera, Light, which focused on a disturbance in the space-time continuum called the Tefahuchi Tract. Nova Swing is set in a galaxy light years away in the "ordinary" city of Saudade, filled with deadbeat characters living dead-end lives. But at the centre of Saudade, and the novel, is the "event zone", a space-time membrane created when a piece of the Tract fell to the ground in the city. The site draws tourists from Saudade, led by a hardened gumboot guide, Vic Serotonin, but it also allows "artefacts" to emerge.

According to the chair of judges, Paul Billinger, Nova Swing is "a vividly and richly described world, full of Harrison's unique interpretations, and is his most lyrical and affecting book to date."
It is the first time that Harrison has won the prestigious prize although he has been immersed in the sci-fi world since the late 60s when he was literary editor of the magazine New Worlds, and a key writer in the "new wave" experimental science fiction movement. His landmark fantasy series, Viriconium, was shortlisted for the Guardian fiction prize in the 1980s while Light was lauded as a triumphant return to genre SF. He has also written a semi-autobiographical book about rock climbing, Climbers, and a number of volumes of short stories.

Harrison was awarded the prize of £2007 and received a commemorative engraved bookend at a ceremony in London last night, held as part of the opening of the Sci-Fi-London Film Festival. Also shortlisted for the prize were Jon Courtenay Grimwood with End of the World Blues, Oh Pure and Radient Heart by Lydia Millet, Hav by Jan Morris, Gradisil by Adam Roberts and Streaking by Brian Stableford.

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie has been nominated for pretty much everything this year. One of my favorite SF books of the past few years.
