Prometheus Award nominees announced

The final slate of nominees for this year’s Prometheus Award has been announced. The award is presented at Worldcon each year by the Libertarian Futurist Society, recognizing “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.” Here’s the 2007 slate:

Empire, Orson Scott Card
The Ghost Brigades, John Scalzi
Glasshouse, Charles Stross
Rainbows End, Vernor Vinge
Harbingers, F. Paul Wilson

The only novel I’ve read on this list is Scalzi’s, although I’ve read past books by the other four authors and have enjoyed all of them. I seem to have some reading to catch up on.

That makes two of us; only one I've read is Paul's.
