Give me sf-prize or give me death …

By Adam Roberts | September 10, 2007
Categories: Book News

I learn today that Gradisil has been nominated by LFS members for the 2008 Prometheus Award in the Best Novel category.  The Best Novel winner receives a one-ounce gold coin and a plaque, presented at the World Science Fiction Convention.

The nomination is the first part of a lengthy process; a ten-person committee whittles the nominees down to finalists, and thence to a winner; but neverthless ... excellent news!

    Congratulations. They ain't give you death after all... And never will. And may I introduce myself - I'm Andry Chang, an aspiring writer.

    Good to know you, Andry.

    Let's hope they can't give me death; although there's a part of me that thinks that it might spice up SF Awards if they could. "And from this year's Arthur C Clarke awards shortlist, one author will take home a lovely trophy! And the other five will be painlessly euthanised!"
