Award Nominations For 2312, INTRUSION and THE FOLLY OF THE WORLD!

2312The British Science Fiction Association (BSFA) have announced their annual award nominations, and up for the ‘Best Novel’ category are Orbit’s very own Kim Stanley Robinson for 2312 [UK | US | ANZ] and Ken MacLeod with INTRUSION [UK | ANZ]. Everyone at Orbit extends their congratulations to both authors and all the other nominees. The full shortlist can be found here.

Kim Stanley Robinson’s 2312  is a bold, critically acclaimed vision of humanity’s future, imbued with “Polymathic, visionary brilliance” (Financial Times).  

With INTRUSION, Ken MacLeod has created a “disturbingly real socialist dystopia” (Guardian) where one woman’s decision to refuse a state-sanctioned pill may have terrible consequences for both her and her family.intrusion

In other exciting awards news today,  Jesse Bullington’s THE FOLLY OF THE WORLD [UK | US | ANZ] has been nominated for the coveted ‘Red Tentacle’ (best novel) at the 2013 Kitschies, the awards given by the popular UK genre website Pornokitsch.

This is the second successive year that Jesse has been nominated, after making the shortlist last year for his superbly dark novel THE ENTERPRISE OF DEATH [UK | US | ANZ].  In Jesse’s own words:

“I’m honored and moved by the jury’s recognition, and wish the best of luck to all my fellow nominees/worthy competitors/mortal enemies.”

THE FOLLY OF THE WORLD tells the tale of one great flood, two warring cities and three uneasy conspirators. Working together they could find fortune beyond reckoning beneath the waves, but the lost souls below will not give up their treasures so easily . . .

“Smart, funny, and full of wild exuberance” – Lauren Beukes

Congratulations to all the other authors nominated! The full shortlists can be found here.
