China Miéville wins British Science Fiction Association's Award

Writing about web page http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2010/apr/07/china-mieville-bsfa-award


Just heard on the wire (from Dan Barrow) that China's latest book, 'The City & The City' (or, 'The City & Teh City', as I like to call it) has won the best novel award from the BSFA. This, with Amazon rating it one of its best books of 2009, will hopefully put China in a good place to take even more risks with whatever he's working on at the moment.

(That said, his next book, 'The Kraken', is billed on Amazon as launching in May/June this year. Going to be colossal. Haha.)

Great also to see an endorsement of the book from the SF community, which shows an anti-purist line by supporting a novel that starts from a crime genre, but develops weird elements.
