Nick Lowe's Mutant Popcorn, Canary Fever by John Clute, Deepa D's I Didn't Dream of Dragons and A Short History of Fantasy by Farah Mendlesohn and Edward James are included in the nonfiction category.

In addition, the BSFA Awards recognise excellence in science fiction artwork and short stories, with Roberto Quaglia, Ian McDonald and Dave Hutchinson among the nominated authors in the final section.
