The Prometheus Award final list has just been e-mailed to me and The Ghost Brigades is on it. Here’s the full finalist slate:
Empire, Orson Scott Card
The Ghost Brigades, John Scalzi
Glasshouse, Charles Stross
Rainbows End, Vernor Vinge
Harbingers, F. Paul Wilson
For those of you wondering what the Prometheus Award’s about, it’s presented by the Libertarian Futurist Society and, in their words, “focuses on novels whose plots, themes, characters and/or specific issues reflect the value of personal freedom and human rights, or which seriously or satirically critique abuses of power– especially unchecked government power.”
Thoughts on the slate?
