One thought on “Finalists: 2008 Philip K. Dick Award [UPDATED]”

  1. I’ve heard good things about Emissaries from the Dead.  If my feet were pressed to the fire, though, I would predicate Fast Forward 2 as the winner, simply based on the fact that I saw this book all over people’s best of lists this past year.  I’m kicking myself that I didn’t pick it up and read it last year.  Thankfully there isn’t an expiration date…I can actually still enjoy it!
