The following is a list of winners and shortlisted authors of the Booker Prize for Fiction. In the following lists, the first titles listed are winners, these are also in bold and in blue background; those not in bold are shortlisted. The chair of the judges is denoted by an asterisk.

The prize was first awarded in 1969, and has been awarded every year since to the book judged the best original full-length novel, written in the English language, by a citizen of either the Commonwealth of Nations or Ireland. There have also been two special awards celebrating the Booker's history. In 1993, the "Booker of Bookers" prize was awarded to Salman Rushdie for Midnight's Children (the 1981 winner), which was judged the best novel to win the award in its first 25 years. Midnight's Children also won a public vote in 2008, on the prize's fortieth anniversary, to be named "The Best of the Booker".
