Prometheus Awards announced

The Prometheus Awards for this year have been announced. (It's an award that go to works of science fiction of interest to libertarians. I'm a member of the group that gives the awards and I serve on the two nominating committees.)

The UNINCORPORATED MAN by Dani and Eytan Kollin won for Best Novel. The Hall of Fame award went to Poul Anderson's novella "No Truce With Kings," which also is a Hugo Award winner.

The RAW tie-in: As far as I know, the only literary award Robert Anton Wilson ever received was his Prometheus Hall of Fame Award in 1986 for ILLUMINATUS!

Thanks, Dan, I checked out the article. I love Jack Vance's "Emphyrio" and Swift's "Gulliver's Travels," two of the books cited in your article. Your assertion that Robert Anton Wilson "probably ranks as the quintessential libertarian science fiction writer" is unlikely to provoke serious dissent in this quarter.
