Campbell finalist


I am proud to announce that COUNTING HEADS was named one of twelve finalists for the John W. Campbell Award. The Campbell Award is for the best novel as judged by a jury selected by the Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas. These are the same folks who present the Sturgeon Award for best short fiction, which "The Wedding Album" won in 2000. Here's the full story.

By the way, the above picture has nothing to do with the Campbell. It's just a nice picture of the trunk of a paper birch across the road that I like.

If you do win, you have to brave Lawrence Kansas in the depths of summer. Drink lots of ice water.:)
