Sun of Suns nominated for a Seiun award!
Japan's top SF award gives me the nod
Here's the complete list under the Best Foreign Novel category. As you can see, I'm in the best possible company this year; in fact, since these books are distilled from years of English-language SF rather than the Hugo's one-year pool, I'd venture to say that winning a Seiun is probably a lot harder than winning a Hugo. Just look at this collection of titles!
- Spin, Robert Charles Wilson
- The Ghost Brigades, John Scalzi
- Redemption Ark, Alastair Reynolds
- Light, M. John Harrison
- The Urth of the New Sun, Gene Wolfe
- Sun of Suns, Karl Schroeder
- Seeker, Jack McDevitt
Note that the complete list of nominations doesn't seem to have been translated yet. You can find ongoing updates on that here.
My thanks go out to Hayakawa Publishing for their excellent edition of Sun of Suns; and of course, a deep bow to Naoya Nakahara, whose translation is really what is being nominated here.
