The Arthur C Clarke Award


LogoThe Arthur C Clarke Award is the UK's foremost literary prize for science fiction literature. It was set up in 1987 funded by a grant from Sir Arthur C Clarke, and generally considered to be one of the 'Big Three' (along with Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein) of SF's classic era.

The 2017 winner, announced at Foyles, Charing Cross Road on 27th July, was Colson Whitehead for The Underground Railroad, described by Andrew Butler as a  "gripping account both of humanity’s inhumanity and the potential for resistance, underpinned by science fiction's ability to make metaphor literal.”

This year’s judges are Dave Hutchinson, Dr Paul March-Russell, Kari Maund, Charles Christian and Gaie Sebold. The Chair of Judges is Dr Andrew M. Butler representing the Arthur C. Clarke Award in a non-voting role.
