Libertarians, as I'm sure most of you have noticed, love to define things; and libertarians being individualists almost always come up with slightly different definitions of the things they define. This has certainly shown up in discussions of which works are eligible for the Hall of Fame award—which works do qualify as libertarian science fiction. Any number of works, including at least one Hall of Fame winner, have been matters of heated debate.
On the other hand, the work I have the pleasure of giving the award to this year is by an author whose qualifications I don't think have ever been questioned.

I am referring to the novel Lone Star Planet, by , the winner of this year's Hall of Fame award.
