I've just read on Futurismic that Richard's been nominated for the Arthur C. Clarke Award this year for best British science fiction for Black Man. Congratulations, Richard!

Aaaand, I left out the part of the message that makes it relevant: The nominations aren't exactly new, but the award is being handed out on Wednesday. So let us keep some fingers crossed for Richard.

The question I meant to ask at the same time was: Why is it that I just heard about this year's short list? Or, put another way, what's the impact of an award like this one? On sales? On the author? On the audience?

Cheers,
Will

That's usually a pretty good place for the up-to-the-minute-SF-"stuff".

According to Jeff Vandermeer's blog (http://www.jeffvandermeer.com/), my autographed first of 'Black Man' has increased in value as Richard has just won the Arthur C. Clarke Award!

Congratulations, Richard!

Congratulations, Richard.

I'm reading it again right now and finding all sorts of futurism I missed the first time through. Well earned.

Congratulations, Richard!

A well deserved award.

And if I was fortunate to have a signed copy, value is irrelevant...I wouldn't part with it.

Thanks guys. Sorry I didn't get round to this earlier, but the last few days have been a bit of a blur.... Still walking on air, in fact....

(belated, since I've only now returned to Nightshade's forum) - congratulations, Richard.
