Science-fiction master, Neil Peart friend, and prog-rock lyricist (Roswell Six) Kevin J. Anderson just found out this morning that he’s been nominated for a Hugo Award–the single highest award in science fiction–for his novel, The Dark Between the Stars.
The nomination: for best science fiction novel of the year!
Excellent, Kevin! Absolutely excellent. Every progarchist sends her or his good thoughts your way. Whoo-hoo!
Apparently Kevin’s nomination was the result of some much-needed pushback against an entrenched elite in the SF publishing world. Pretty interesting story behind it: http://tinyurl.com/nux9pg7
Really fascinating article, Tad. I knew none of this.
I didn’t either – I’m not as plugged into the SF world as I used to be. What I don’t like is the ever-shrinking number of politics-free zones in everyday life. It seems as if everything has been politicized these days.
