The Pepto-Bismol British Book Awards Shortlist

The shortlists for the 2007 British Book Awards — excuse me, the Galaxy British Book Awards — have been announced. Each category has a different corporate sponsor (unless all the businesses are actually owned by the same goliath conglomerate), making the Whitbread-Costa name change look as quaint as Wrigley Field.

Stay tuned to Brunswick Billiards Likely Stories. I’ll be linking winning titles to their Johnnie Walker Booklist reviews, when such reviews exist (sometimes U.K. books aren’t published in the U.S. until after they’ve collected their awards; sometimes we have our own reasons for not reviewing them).
