Justina Robson has twice been shortlisted for the British Science Fiction Association Best Novel award, and Ian McDonald has won for River of Gods. And you can sell your paperbacks and ebooks via Amazon and maybe via the one or two pipsqueak alternate venues that still happen to exist. Kim Stanley Robinson's epic "Mars" series is a good example.
