The Book of Strange New Things shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award

The shortlisted titles for the 2015 Arthur C. Clarke Award for best science fiction novel of the year published in 2014 have been announced and we are thrilled to report that Michel Faber's The Book of Strange New Things has made the cut!

Award director Tom Hunter said: 'We've got six authors who have never been nominated for the Clarke Award before and while the subject matter may often be dark, when we think about what this list says about the strength of science fiction literature itself, I see a future that’s full of confidence, creativity and diversity of imagination.'

The Award was originally established by a generous grant from Sir Arthur C. Clarke with the aim of promoting science fiction and is Britain's most prestigious SF award. The winner will be announced in May.
