The Philip K. Dick Awards Announce Nominees

dick$philip$k_hresThe Sci-Fi award season kicks off as the Philadelphia SF Society and the Philip K. Dick Trust announced the nominees for the 2014 Philip K. Dick Award today. Founded in 1983 and named for the acclaimed author of such classics as Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and The Man in the High Castle, the award honors distinguished science fiction published originally in paperback in the United States. Because it focuses on paperback only titles, the judges tends to pick more unusual titles than the Hugo and Nebula Awards. Last year the award went to Countdown City by Ben H. Winters.

This years’ nominees are as follows:

mapleI’ve only read one of these books, Maplecroft, but it was a doozy. And I’d love to see it earn some acclaim. So, apologies to the other entries, I’m sure you are all wonderful, but I’m on Team Lizzy for this award.

The award will be presented on April 3 at Norwescon in Seattle.
