The Obligatory Annual Awards Eligibility Post


Awards Season has once again recommenced, and folk often tell us that they like to have a list of what was published when, in order to help them plan their award nominations and votes.

The books and artists below are listed simply as an aide-mémoire – not as a list of recommendations. Similarly, the genre listed beside each book is a suggestion – many of these titles are multi-genre, so don’t take the suggestions as the final word.
