Note: Sub-Genre Award (Science Fiction). Presented by the British Science Fiction Association (BSFA) to honor works chosen based on a vote of BSFA members. More recently, members of the Eastercon convention have also been eligible to vote. Novels must be published in the UK, but short fiction may appear anywhere. BSFA awards are given for the year of eligibility, not the year of presentation, e.g. the 2006 awards were given for items published in 2006.
