In an unprecedented victory, The House of Shattered Wings author Aliette de Bodard won two British Science Fiction Association awards, making her the first person since 1976 to win two awards in one year. Aliette won best novel for The House of Shattered Wings, (Ace/Roc in the US, Gollancz in the UK) and best short story for “Three Cups of Grief, By Starlight” (Clarkesworld). In a review for The Guardian, Eric Brown called de Bodard’s The House of Shattered Wings “something startlingly and creepily original.”

Once you finish her award-winning novel be sure to check out her fantastic backlist!
