Arthur C. Clarke Award shortlist announced

4th March 2011

The shortlist for the Arthur C. Clarke award, which recognises the best in science fiction literature from the last year, has been announced.

Among the works shortlisted for the 25th annual award are Zoo City by Lauren Beukes, The Dervish House by Ian McDonald and Patrick Ness's Monsters of Men.

They will compete against Generosity by Richard Powers, Tricia Sullivan's Lightborn and Declare by Tim Powers.

Award director Tom Hunter said the 'fascinating and exciting' shortlist is befitting of the 25th anniversary of the prize.

'My hope is that 25 years from now people will still be coming back to it as a representation of everything that's best about the diversity and strength of our genre,' he added.

The winner of the award, which carries a GBP 2,011 prize, will be announced during the Sci-Fi-London Film Festival on April 27th.

Last year's Arthur C. Clarke Award was won by China Mieville for The City & The City, which the judges described as 'a brilliant book by one of the greatest writers in any genre'.
