So it seems I jumped the gun on the eligibility front this morning: the BSFA have posted a clarification about ebook eligibility:

Q) If the novel category is for UK publication only, what about X which is available internationally as an e-book?

A) We are looking at first UK publications only for the Novel category. These will be:
a) A UK print publication, published for the first time in 2011; or
b) Published as an ebook that is available in the UK for the first time in 2011 and doesn’t have a print edition.

We will of course check any and all suggestions out, but the titles will only have one shot at the award no matter what.


So, God's War not eligible after all. An ebook-only novel would be, however.
