giftsIt’s officially the height of awards season for Sci-Fi as the Arthur C. Clarke Awards announced their shortlist for 2014.

The shortlist is a refreshing mix of titles, including some literary novels that touch on sci-fi themes and no Ancillary Sword (sorry, Ann Leckie!).

The list is as follows:

9780385353304The only title I’ve read is Station Eleven, which was one of my nominees for the Hugo, but I’m familiar with most of the other titles on the list.

    Wow, awesome list, finally! I loved STATION ELEVEN, but I’m thrilled to see THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS on there as well. Those two were on my top ten of 2014:-D
