The Clarke Award 2017 was given to Colson Whitehead for The Underground Railroad. Was it really sf/f? Is it enough to add an sf trope to make it science fiction? Are there any other examples of borderline cases? And how are they treated by book shops and reviewers?
Participants: Flemming Rasch, Ian Sales, Patrik Schylström, Linda Carey, Nahal Ghanbari (moderator)
