1995 Prometheus Award Nominees

Location: Unknown.

Comments: In 1995 Poul Anderson pulled off a coup at the Prometheus Awards that I don't believe has ever been accomplished by anyone else either before or since - he won both the Best Novel award for The Stars Are Also Fire and had his novel The Star Fox inducted into the Hall of Fame. The singularity of this accomplishment seems entirely appropriate, as Anderson has always had a strong libertarian streak in his stories and his books were much better than many of the others who shared this ideological bent. The only mystery is why didn't Anderson's books win more Prometheus Awards.
