Prometheus Hall of Fame nomination
Well, well. It looks as if THE GOLDEN AGE, my three-volume love-letter to Liberty, has finally attracted the attention of the Libertarians.
I read this announcement
on the website of the Indiana State LP:
Futurists Announce 2009 HOF Finalists
The Hall of Fame committee moved their schedule ahead this year in order to give the members of the LFS more time to read the nominees. The committee started reading and discussing classic works in August, and have agreed on the list of finalists below. All LFS members will be allowed to vote on this slate in July. The Best Novel winner will be chosen by our Full members (also in July) from a slate which will be nselected in the spring. This approach gives members time to read the Classic works before the rush to read the Best Novel nominees.
The following is the list of finalists for the 2009 Prometheus Hall of Fame award:
Falling Free, a novel by Lois McMaster Bujold (1988);
Courtship Rite, a novel by Donald M. Kingsbury (1982);
"As Easy as A.B.C.," a short story by Rudyard Kipling (1912);
The Lord of the Rings, a three-volume novel by J. R. R. Tolkien (1955);
The Once and Future King, including The Book of Merlyn, a novel by T. H. White (1977); and
The Golden Age, a novel by John C. Wright (2002).
The Libertarian Futurist Society was founded in 1982 to recognize and promote libertarian science fiction. LFS presents the annual Prometheus Award for Best Novel, the Prometheus Hall of Fame Award for best classic literary works of liberty and occasional Prometheus Special Awards for other categories (short fiction, dramatic presentations, life achievement and similar awards)
