Cool. Very cool, and very unexpected.
Just got word from Vox Day that The Stars Came Back has been nominated for a Prometheus Award for this year. It’s the award given by the Libertarian Futurist Society.
Past winners include Sarah Hoyt, Harry Turtledove, L. Neil Smith, Vernor Vinge, Terry Pratchett, Ken MacLeod, Poul Anderson, James P. Hogan, J. Neil Schulman, and many more big names. Even if I come in last place, just being nominated to potentially stand amid such a group of names is quite an honor.

Screenplay or novel format? Or do they distinguish between the two?
Right now there is nothing out there but the screenplay-esque format, so I’m guessing they are looking at that. As far as I know, they don’t distinguish because they normally don’t have to.
That’s fantastic news! Congratulations. Let’s hope it’s not just a nomination but indeed the award as well.
Agreed. It would be very nice indeed to be able to add “Award-winning author” to my resume, and could make for some interesting interviews when job hunting.
