I'm delighted to say that The This has been shortlisted for the 2023 BSFA Award for best novel. It's a great honour, especially considering the high calibre of the other shortlisted titles. The winner will be announced at this year’s Eastercon, Conversation, (at the Birmingham Metropole, 7th–10th April 2023) and BSFA members can vote here. I'll be at the ceremony: maybe see you there.
[Update 8th April] Didn't win! Ah well.
