David Louis Edelman May 31st, 2007
I’m very, very pleased to be in such august company. Other nominees include Charles Stross, Vernor Vinge, Karl Schroeder, Ben Bova, M. John Harrison, James Morrow, Peter Watts, Justina Robson, and Jo Walton. Which means my chances of winning are probably about as high as my chances of being picked by New Line Cinema to direct The Hobbit, but what the heck, a nomination is a big honor.
This is indeed my first nomination for any major publishing award (although Infoquake was awarded Top SF Novel of 2006 by Barnes & Noble Explorations). And I believe it’s the first Campbell Award nomination for my publisher Pyr as well.
For those who are just hearing about Infoquake for the first time and want to know more about it, check out the website. You can read the first seven chapters online there, or listen to the first four chapters on audio.
I should also mention that I’ve just signed the contract for MultiReal, the sequel to Infoquake, so it’s an especially good day over here in Edelmanville.
A tip o’ the hat to John Scalzi as well, from whose blog I learned the news about 20 minutes ago.
