Congratulations to Sean Williams–Finalist for the 2008 Philip K. Dick Award

A big congratulations to Sean Williams on being a finalist for the 2008 Phillip K. Dick Award. Sean is nominated for his book Saturn Returns.

Sean is one of the judges for the Writers of the Future contest and was one of the judges for the quarter I won in. We hit it off at the WOTF week…perhaps because we both have a thing for Saturn? Hmm…

He’s such a nice guy and a really fabulous writer; I hope he wins (even though he’s up against a fellow Canadian, Minister Faust, who is nominated for his book From the Notebooks of Dr. Brain–you know Sean must be good if he can make me betray my countryman!)

The Philip K. Dick Award is presented annually with the support of the Philip K. Dick Trust for distinguished science fiction published in paperback original form in the United States. The award is sponsored by the Philadelphia Science Fiction Society and the award ceremony is sponsored by the NorthWest Science Fiction Society.

You can find the full list here.

Let the Dick jokes begin! 🙂
