Prometheus Award nominee

Thursday , 29, January 2015 5 Comments

Congratulations to Rolf Nelson, whose debut novel THE STARS CAME BACK has been nominated for the Prometheus Award!

Founded in 1982 to provide encouragement to science fiction writers whose books examine the meaning of freedom, the Libertarian Futurist Society revived the Prometheus Award for best libertarian novel of the year. LFS began in 1982 sponsoring the annual Prometheus Award for Best Novel, and in 1983 a second annual award called the Prometheus Hall of Fame Award was added. The Prometheus Hall of Fame Award is designed to honor classic libertarian fiction.

The prize for both the Prometheus and the Hall of Fame awards is a gold coin, representing free trade and free minds, mounted on an engraved plaque. Originally, for the Prometheus Best Novel Award the coin was one-half ounce, for the Hall of Fame it was one-eighth ounce. Starting in 2001, the Prometheus Best Novel Award coin became one ounce.

    A well deserved accolade, for an excellent debut novel. I look forward to Rolf’s future works with peeled eyes and a caffeine reserve.
