We’ve had a good day so far. The BFS Awards shortlists have been announced.
This year Fox Spirit has been shortlisted for Best Indie Press for the third year running, an honour we won in 2015.
Writer Margret Helgadottir is shortlisted for Best Collection with The Stars Seem So Far Away, a selection of short stories that take place in the same world and build to a shared conclusion.
