BSFA Tribute to Brian
At the last BSFA meeting a tribute was made to Brian. Although not one of the founder members of the BSFA, Brian was given the #1 membership number very early in its days, and BSFA felt very honoured to have him as their special guest at the BSFA/SFF joint AGM and mini-convention a couple of years ago.
Brian won BSFA Awards in 1971 for his collection, The Moment of Eclipse, and in 1973 won a special award for Billion Year Spree. In 1982 he won the Best Novel award for Helliconia Spring, repeating the win in 1985 for Helliconia Winter.
