The shortlists will then be announced, and the juries will go on to decide the winners, which will be announced at an awards ceremony held at the World Fantasy Convention 2013, which runs from October 31 to November 3 in Brighton.

The jury members were selected by the British Fantasy Awards Administrator, Stephen Theaker (, and approved by the committee of the British Fantasy Society.
