And my own eligible work: Rollback

Speaking of Hugo and Aurora Awards, might I gently remind the world that my novel Rollback is currently eligible for nomination for both?

Rollback was published in hardcover by Tor in April 2007 (and was a Main Selection of the Science Fiction Book Club); the paperback comes out February 5, 2008.

Rollback is currently on the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America's Preliminary Nebula Award Ballot. Others have suggested Rollback is worthy of awards consideration, too:
"Sawyer, who has won Hugo and Nebula awards, may well win another major SF award with this superior effort." --Publishers Weekly (starred review, denoting a book of exceptional merit)

"An early candidate for sci-fi book of the year." --Kansas City Star (which also included Rollback on its Top-Five SF Books of the Year list)

"Rollback gets my vote as SF novel of the year. A joy to read." --Jack McDevitt, author of Odyssey

"I highly recommend Robert J. Sawyer's Rollback. It's a shoo-in to be short-listed for next year's major awards." --SciFiDimensions
Much more about Rollback, including sample chapters, more reviews, and a book-club discussion guide, is here.

(Yes, the full text of Rollback was originally serialized in Analog Science Fiction and Fact, the world's top-selling English-language SF magazine, in the October 2006, November 2006, December 2006, and January-February 2007 issues, but it's the date of the final issue that determines award eligibility. Rollback is a 2007 work and is indeed eligible for the Hugo and the Aurora to be given in 2008.)

If I had a vote, you'd get it, Robert. That was a great read.

I have just voted for "Rollback" and "Birthstones" - and I have made an award appeal of my own on my livejournal blog ( for the anthology, "Fall and Rise", which features stories by Phyllis and you, among others.
