I was going to link to the File 770, which is where I saw this, but they provided a link to the Edgars site and it has more detail. Actually, poking around the site it has some interesting features. Wait, I can do both.

From wikipedia
The Edgar Allan Poe Awards (popularly called the Edgars), named after Edgar Allan Poe, are presented every year by the Mystery Writers of America,[...] based in New York City.[...] They honor the best in mystery fiction, non-fiction, television, film, and theater published or produced in the previous year.

The current jury consists of Elizabeth Bear, Andy Duncan, James Gunn, Kij Johnson, and Noël Sturgeon, Trustee of the Theodore Sturgeon Literary Estate.

The 2014 Prometheus Best Novel Award Finalists were announced and either I missed it or I forgot noticing it.

Best Novel finalists:

Homeland, by Cory Doctorow (TOR Books)
A Few Good Men, by Sarah Hoyt (Baen Books)
Crux, by Ramez Naam (Angry Robot Books)
Nexus, by Ramez Naam (Angry Robot Books)
Brilliance, by Marcus Sakey (Thomas & Mercer)

Here are the 2014 finalists (in chronological order) for the Prometheus Hall of Fame award for Best Classic Fiction:

"As Easy as A.B.C.," a short story (1912) by Rudyard Kipling
"Sam Hall," a short story (1953) by Poul Anderson
"'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman," a short story (1965) by Harlan Ellison
Falling Free, a novel (1988) by Lois McMaster Bujold
Courtship Rite, a novel (1982) by Donald M. Kingsbury

It's kind of sad I've read all the ones in the Hall of Fame list and none of the contemporary ones. I will say this isn't the first time I've run across Naam's name in the last month or so.
