British Science Fiction Association Award
The BSFA awards are presented annually by the British Science Fiction Association, based on a vote of BSFA members and - in recent years - members of the British national science fiction convention.
Complete BSFA Award novel listing from 1969-2015
The Best Novel award is open to any novel-length work of science fiction or fantasy which is published in the UK for the first time in the year before the award. (Serialised novels are eligible, provided that the publication date of the concluding part is in the eligible year.) If a novel has been previously published elsewhere, but it hasn't been published in the UK until the eligible year, it is still eligible.
The shortlists for the awards are compiled from nominations submitted by members of the BSFA. They are then voted on by BSFA members and by attending members of the British national convention.
