DiChario nominated for Campbell Memorial

I am thrilled to report that Nick DiChario's A Small and Remarkable Life, published under the Robert J. Sawyer Books imprint, has been short-listed for one of the most prestigious awards in all of science fiction: The John W. Campbell Memorial Award for Best Novel of the Year.

The short list is here.

The Campbell Memorial is the principal juried award in the field, bestowed by a blue-ribbon panel of American and British academics and authors.

As it happens, I myself won the award last year for my novel Mindscan, so you'll find a lot of information about it in my press release for that win.

For the record, this is the second award nomination for an RJS Books publication; the first, last year, was the Aurora Award -- Canada's top SF award -- for best short work in English, for "Alexander's Road," the one original story in Karl Schroeder's collection The Engine oF Recall, as you can see here.

Can I pick 'em, or what? :)
