    I’d not heard of these prizes before, but they sound right up my street (they “reward the year’s most progressive, intelligent and entertaining works that contain elements of the speculative or fantastic”).

    Currently reading Angelmaker by Nick Harkaway and Jack Glass by Adam Roberts is next on my list.

    The full shortlist is as follows:

    The 2012 finalists for the Red Tentacle (best novel):

    Jesse Bullington’s The Folly of the World (Orbit)
    Frances Hardinge’s A Face Like Glass (Macmillan)
    Nick Harkaway’s Angelmaker (William Heinemann)
    Adam Roberts’ Jack Glass (Gollancz)
    Juli Zeh’s The Method (Harvill Secker) (Translated by Sally-Ann Spencer)

    The 2012 finalists for the Golden Tentacle (best debut):

    Madeline Ashby’s vN (Angry Robot)
    Jenni Fagan’s The Panopticon (William Heinemann)
    Rachel Hartman’s Seraphina (Doubleday)
    Karen Lord’s Redemption in Indigo (Jo Fletcher Books)
    Tom Pollock’s The City’s Son (Jo Fletcher Books)

    The 2012 finalists for the Inky Tentacle (best cover art):

    La Boca for Ned Beauman’s The Teleportation Accident (Sceptre)
    Oliver Jeffers for John Boyne’s The Terrible Thing that Happened to Barnaby Brocket (Doubleday)
    Tom Gauld for Matthew Hughes’ Costume Not Included (Angry Robot)
    Peter Mendelsund for Ben Marcus’ Flame Alphabet (Granta)
    Dave Shelton for his own A Boy and a Bear in a Boat (David Fickling Books)
