The Search Begins

Prometheus Nominations Start
Deadline April 1st

It is now time for all members of the Libertarian Futurist Society to nominate books for the 1984 Prometheus Award (for fiction published in 1983) and for the 1984 Hall of Fame Award. Inside this issue readers will find a nominations form.

Anyone belonging to LFS, whether as a Basic member or as an Advisory member, may nominate books in either category.

So far, only five books have been nominated. Code of the Lifemaker by James Hogan. Double Crossing—the new Erica Holzer novel which has, evidently, been chosen for a Book of the Month Club alternate—and Khi to Freedom by Ardath Mayhar have been nominated for the Prometheus Award. George Orwell's 1984 and Ursula Le Guin's The Dispossessed have been nominated for the Hall of Fame.

If you have not yet renewed your membership, you may do so at the same time by marking the appropriate box and enclosing a check.

The deadline for nominations is April 1st, which does not give us much time.

Please think carefully about the new books you have read this year and if you can, include a few lines (or more) about each book you nominate. Any comments will be printed in the Spring newsletter to help other members choose titles to read.

Since we are getting more publicity each year (science fiction magazines and newsletters like Locus and Science Fiction Review report and comment on our nominations as well as our winners), it is becoming more and more important to single out the very best libertarian science fiction available. Please make your nominations as soon as you can.
