On both BSFA and Arthur C Clarke shortlists:
End of the World Blues, by Jon Courtenay Grimwood
Nova Swing, by M. John Harrison

On BSFA shortlist only:
Darkland, by Liz Williams
Icarus, by Roger Levy
The Last Witchfinder, by James Morrow

On Arthur C Clarke shortlist only:
Oh Pure and Radiant Heart, by Lydia Millet
Hav, by Jan Morris
Gradisil, by Adam Roberts
Streaking, by Brian Stableford

I am struck by how few of these I would have been likely to read without their being shortlisted. Probably Grimwood and Williams; perhaps I will give Harrison another try, though I was one of the few people left unimpressed by Light
