A double apology. Firstly, I should have congratulated Nina Allan for winning the BSFA Award for Short Fiction with Spin when the awards were announced. Secondly, I should have reviewed the novella but – as with Ian Sales’s BSFA Award-winning novella last year – I failed to get round to it. I was reminded of this by Daniel Libris’s recent review so go and read that then go and buy Allan’s book.
Congratulations to all the other winners and commisserations to the others on the short fiction award shortlist:
- ‘Selkie Stories Are For Losers’ by Sofia Samatar
- ‘Saga’s Children’ by EJ Swift
- ‘Boat In Shadows, Crossing’ by Tori Truslow
