Nick DiChario novel from RJS Books nominated for Campbell Memorial!

Nick DiChario is now two for two! His Valley of Day-Glo, published under Fitzhenry & Whiteside's Robert J. Sawyer Books imprint, is a finalist for the John W. Campbell Memorial Award -- the principal juried award in the science-fiction field, voted on by a blue-ribbon panel of American and British academics, critics, and authors.

The Campbell Memorial is considered the third of the big-three SF awards, after the Hugo and the Nebula (and is the only major award for which only science fiction, and not fantasy, is eligible).

Nick's A Small and Remarkable Life, also published under my imprint, was previously nominated for the same award.

The winner will be announced in Kansas City at the Campbell Conference, July 9-12, 2009.

The full list of nominees is here, and you can read Nancy Kress's introduction to the book here.

Congratulations, Nick!

Great news. Valley of Day Glo was a fantastic read. Nick has some stiff competition, but he is as deserving as any of the other finalists.
