BSFA Nominees

SF Awards Watch has the full list of nominees; all we need now is the American version of Niall Harrison to come into the comment thread and sneer at it. (SFWA should designate someone to officially do so...not that SFWA is organized or unanimous enough to do that.)

For myself, the really interesting nominee is Alice in Sunderland, under novel. This is actually a work of comics; what's sometimes called a "graphic novel." I wasn't aware the BSFA's definition of "novel" included comics. (I myself pit novels against graphic novels in my own year-end round-ups, but I'm not entirely sure if it's a good idea for awards to do so on an ad hoc basis.)
