This news was embargoed until today, otherwise we would probably have been talking about it all weekend. The long list for this year’s highly prestigious €100,000 Impac Prize, voted on by the world’s librarians, has been announced. Among the nominees are:
- Escher’s Loops by our Guest of Honor, Zoran Živković
- The World Fantasy Award winning The Shadow Year by Jeff Ford
- Lavinia by Ursula K. LeGuin
- Anthem by Neal Stephenson
The Guardian has the full long list. There are several other books of a fantastical nature on it.
