Sf/fantasy writers I recognized on the list and their nominated works are: Paolo Bacigalupi, Ship Breaker, Lauren Beukes, Zoo City, Guy Gavriel Kay, Under Heaven, China Miéville, Kraken: an anatomy, Nnedi Okorafor, Who Fears Death.
The shortlist will be announced April 12, 2012, while the winner will be announced June 13, 2012.
[Thanks to John Mansfield for the story.]
Though her nominated work (“Under the Poppy,” which was published by Gavin Grant and Kelly Link’s Small Beer Press) is primarily a historical, I would add Kathe Koja to your list.
