The Annual Awards Eligibility Post

As has now become customary, we’re listing below the books we published last year that are eligible for various awards. Being British, however, we’re doing it furtively, and we’re looking up every now and then to make sure no-one’s watching us.

As ever, this list is provided purely as an aide-mémoire, not as a list of recommendations – if you’ve read the works below and consider them to be award-worthy, the authors would be thrilled if you would consider nominating/voting for them. If you haven’t read them, they’re all available from your favourite offline or online store.

Here are the books

The Author - Wesley Chu
