One thought on “WINNERS: 2014 Prometheus Awards”

  1. Interesting that best novel was a tie vote. Homeland had more accomplished prose technique, warmer characterization and tech speculation relevant to today. Nexus had flashier, farther future speculation inside a more conventional thriller plot. They’re both great books.
