Prometheus Award nominees listed
The Libertarian Futurist Society has announced the following nominees for the Prometheus Award:
RAGAMUFFIN, Tobias S. Buckell
THE EXECUTION CHANNEL, Ken MacLeod;
FLEET OF WORLDS, Larry Niven and Edward M. Lerner;
THE GLADIATOR, Harry Turtledove, and
HA'PENNY, Jo Walton.
Winners will be announced at Denvention 3 in August.
The Hall of Fame nominees this year are A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, Anthony Burgess; "As Easy as A.B.C.," Rudyard Kipling; THAT HIDEOUS STRENGTH, C. S. Lewis; THE LORD OF THE RINGS, J.R. Tolkien, and THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING, T. H. White. (Kipling rendered differently here because it's a short story, not a novel.) The latter award may cause me considerable soul-searching; I love the Tolkien, but I'm not convinced yet of its Libertarian bona fides.
The Hugo nominees came out recently too; you can keep up with all this stuff at the Science Fiction Awards Watch blog.
