Worldcon came to London in 2014. It’s rare for Britain to host the planet’s most prestigious SF/fantasy convention, and “Loncon” was a great success. Though British fandom rejoiced, hopes for a “the British are coming!” moment in SF were undermined by the lack of Brit winners, or even nominees, in the convention’s annual Hugo awards. This year’s best-novel Hugo went to Ancillary Justice (Orbit), American writer Ann Leckie’s first novel. Indeed, 2014 quickly turned into Leckie’s year. Universally acclaimed, she became the first author to win the Arthur C Clarke, Nebula and Hugo awards all in the same year. Her followup, Ancillary Sword, is out now. It advances the multivolume story with aplomb; and if there is a hint of momentum slipping, that’s an index of the levels of expectation now placed on this writer.
