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.

Being chosen as a Worldcon Guest of Honour is a significant recognition of each person's commitment and contribution, and means that the list of Guests of Honour thus effectively represents a Hall of Fame for the science fiction and fantasy field.
