Prometheus Award Nominee

Okay, so maybe I haven’t said much about this here, but I’ve been nominated for the Prometheus Award. This means I join the likes of Andy Weir, Corey Doctorow, Robert Heinlein, C.J. Cherryh, Larry Correia, Neal Stephenson, Eric Flint, Terry Pratchett, John Ringo, David Weber, Harry Turtledove, Michael Flynn, L. Neil Smith, James Hogan, Steven King, Ursula LeGuin, Samuel Delaney and, of course, one of my all-time favorite authors who led me into the field of crosstime adventure, H. Beam Piper, in being nominated for this award. Here’s a list of all nominees, finalists, and winners.

It would be great to win, or even be a finalist, but I’m humbled just to be nominated. This tells me that somewhere out there, somebody thought my book was good enough for such a prestigious award. Thank you!

If you’ve never heard of the Prometheus Award, it’s an award given by the Libertarian Futurist Society to the author of the best Science Fiction novel that promotes freedom and liberty. It’s been around since 1979.

  1. You go man!!! 🙂 hope you get it. Your books are very much libertarian fiction. Reminds me of L Neil Smith’s stuff 🙂

    1. Thanks Scott. Can’t say I’ve read much of L. Neil Smith’s stuff (I believe I read “The Probability Broach”). I’m more influenced by Heinlein and H. Beam Piper – more individuality than libertarian thought, I presume.

      1. oh then you’ve missed some fun reads.. the probability broach has 2 or three more books in the series, his pallas books are good to. lots more also stand alone and a couple more series. He is/was…. died about a year and a half ago… a great proponent of the more classical libertarian philosopy as wall as a rabid pro-gun/right to self defense person.. which is really a core libertarian thing. He has a lot of nonfiction libertarian stuff he also wrote. He wasn’t that prolific the last 15 years or so, which leaves most of his fiction written in the late 70’s to the early 2000’s.. He was one of my core libertarian influences when I was a teenager. Loved Heinlein and Piper to, though… Heinlein was a bit weird in that at some point his writing changed. He went from hard core youth oriented books with a real uplifting tone to a much more hardcore humanist style book. Don’t get me wrong I loved both styles but it always almost felt as if it was different authors the change was so marked. Scott

      2. Sounds like Smith and I have a lot in common – classical liberalism with a strong 2A presence.
