Roll up, roll up. The red carpet’s out, the champagne’s flowing and you’re invited to the only awards show of the New Year that really matters – The SFX Reader Awards 2009. You voted in your thousands and now that the SFX number crunching monkeys have tallied up the final results, we can finally reveal what you consider to be the shining examples of science fiction in 2009.
