I’m pleased to announce that my novels 𝐵𝑒𝑡𝑤𝑒𝑒𝑛 𝐻𝑜𝑚𝑒 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑅𝑢𝑖𝑛 and 𝑆𝑒𝑖𝑧𝑒 𝑊ℎ𝑎𝑡’𝑠 𝐻𝑒𝑙𝑑 𝐷𝑒𝑎𝑟 are finalists for the Prometheus Award for Best Libertarian Science Fiction Novel.
𝐵𝑒𝑡𝑤𝑒𝑒𝑛 𝐻𝑜𝑚𝑒 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑅𝑢𝑖𝑛 is the struggle of a newly discovered free world to survive against a government that erases history to suppress any challenge to its rule.
𝑆𝑒𝑖𝑧𝑒 𝑊ℎ𝑎𝑡’𝑠 𝐻𝑒𝑙𝑑 𝐷𝑒𝑎𝑟 shows the battle-scarred Fierans striking back, liberating an oppressed world. Can the two worlds cooperate enough to hold their freedom?
I congratulate my fellow nominees Kazuo Ishiguro, Wil McCarthy, and Lionel Shriver. I hope the voters enjoy reading all our works.
All full members of the Libertarian Futurist Society are eligible to vote for the Prometheus Award.
In other news, the revised draft of Captain Trader Helmsman Spy is in the hands of my editor, and should be out soon. I’ve had some medical followups and it looks like I’m doing fine, for which I am relieved and thankful.
