The first major SF book award of the year was announced today at The Kitschies Awards ceremony in the UK!
Although The Kitschies has only been around since 2009, established by pornokitsch.com and sponsored by a rum company, it may seem like a rather un-major award, but considering the impressive panel of judges, and its mission to recognize “the year’s most progressive, intelligent, and entertaining works” of SF from the UK is quite compelling. You can see the full list of winners and nominees here. I’m tempted to squeeze of few of these into my own, already overfull reading list.
Congrats to the winners!
