Jane Rogers has won the 2012 Arthur C. Clarke Award for her novel, The Testament of Jessie Lamb.
Below, we’ve embedded free samples of all the books on the shortlist for the UK’s prestigious science fiction prize.
Here’s more from Tom Hunter, the Prize director: “”It wasn’t an obvious Arthur C Clarke winner – it’s not from a science fiction publisher but from a small Scottish press … It offers a route into dealing with quite serious issues, about science, about maternity and about making choices.”
