Arthur C. Clarke 30th Anniversary Awards 2016

Wednesday 24th August 2016 6:30pm - 9:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event

Celebrating its 30th anniversary year in 2016, the Arthur C. Clarke Award is quite simply the most prestigious prize for science fiction in the UK and recognised as one of the most respected literary awards in the world; the equivalent of the Man Booker Prize for SF fans. We're delighted once again to be hosting the award ceremony, at which this year's winner will be revealed by the Director of the Clarke Award, Tom Hunter.

The six shortlisted books in the running to receive the prize of 2016 and a commemorative engraved bookend are:

• The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet – Becky Chambers (Hodder & Stoughton)
• Europe at Midnight – Dave Hutchinson (Solaris)
• The Book of Phoenix – Nnedi Okorafor (Hodder & Stoughton)
• Arcadia – Iain Pears (Faber & Faber)
• Way Down Dark – J.P. Smythe (Hodder & Stoughton)
• Children of Time – Adrian Tchaikovsky (Tor)

Join us at this very special evening as we raise a glass to the winner of the 2016 Arthur C. Clarke Award. Complimentary drinks & nibbles will be available.
