BSFA award 2023 shortlist

Unbelievably proud to discover that my story, A Moment Of Zugzwang, has been voted on to the British Science Fiction Association award shortlist for 2023. It’s a massive priviledge to share the nomination with four other hugely talented authors.

A Moment Of Zugzwang is one of my near future surveillance bees stories (a series that began with The Memoirist). It’s a sort of murder mystery set in a European city, and features chess and a very cool German word (that pandemic Duolingoing finally paid off). It was published in issue 4 of ParSec Magazine, and the cover art by Vincent Sammy has also been shortlisted!

An excerpt of the story will feature in the BSFA Awards booklet which is sent to prospective voters. But if you want to read it in full, the publishers have very kindly given me permission to make it available here until the voting closes.

Yiz can have a gander at the full shortlist here.
