1998 Clarke Award Nominees
Comments: The most interesting thing about the 1998 Clarke Awards is not that Mary Doria Russell won for The Sparrow, her novel about first contact with aliens gone wrong, because there is no question that her work is a deserving winner. No, the interesting thing is that Stephen Baxter was nominated yet again and didn't win. Baxter seems to be nominated almost every year, and yet he has never won a Clarke Award, and must hold some sort of record for the most nominations without a victory.
