British Fantasy Award Nominees Announced

Nominations for the British Fantasy Awards were announced earlier this week. The nominees were chosen by a combination of membership votes from the British Fantasy Society and juried members of the selection committee. Winners will be selected by jury and announced on Oct. 25 at FantasyCon in Nottingham, England.

This is an interesting list, there are some strange selections (cough, Station Eleven, cough). And I admit, I’m not familiar with most of these, I assume because they were not readily available in the states? Regardless, congratulations to all the Nominees!
