The Libertarian Futurist Society has announced that F. Paul Wilson will receive the Prometheus Award for Lifetime Achievement at Marcon in Columbus, Ohio the weekend of May 8-10. This is only the third time the award has been presented, with Poul Anderson being honored in 2001 and Vernor Vinge recognized last year.
Vernor Vinge will receive a Lifetime Achievement Prometheus Award from the Libertarian Futurist Society. This is only the second Lifetime Achievement Award the organization has presented. Vinge has won the Prometheus Awards on four separate occasions, for his novels Marooned in Realtime and A Deepness in the Sky and the Hall of Fame award for his stories “The Ungoverned” and “True Names.” He will receive the award during Marcon 50, where he will be one of the guests of honor, the weekend of May 8-10.
