The 2013 Hugo Awards:
John Scalzi's swashbuckling space adventure with a twist, REDSHIRTS: A Novel with Three Codas, is a finalist for the Hugo Award for Best Novel! And debut novelist Max Gladstone is shortlisted for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer! Woohoo! See the full list of Hugo finalists here.
Woohoos are also in order for Tor editors Liz Gorinsky and Patrick Nielsen Hayden who are Hugo finalists in the category of Best Editor–Long Form.
And might I add it's fantastic to see the Writing Excuses podcast (Season 7) on the list of finalists in the Best Related Work category since so many of our excellent writers are a part of it.
2013 Prometheus Award:
Finalists for the Prometheus Award for libertarian science fiction novels in the Best Novel category include ARCTIC RISING by Tobias Buckell and THE UNINCORPORATED FUTURE and Dani Kollin and Eytan Kollin! Previous Tor winners include Jo Walton and Cory Doctorow.
Congratulations to all of this year's finalists!
