The shortlist for the 2009 British Science Fiction Association (BSFA) Awards has been announced.

Competing for the best novel honour are China Mieville's The City and the City, Ark by Stephen Baxter, Adam Roberts' Yellow Blue Tibia and Lavinia by Ursula Le Guin.

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.

The winners will be announced at the Eastercon science fiction event on April 4th in a ceremony at the Heathrow Radisson Edwardian hotel. Authors Ian Watson and Paul Cornell will deliver a presentation at the event.
