1996 Prometheus Award Nominees

Location: Unknown.

Comments: In 1996, the Libertarian Futurist Society went back to its roots and inducted Robert A. Heinlein's juvenile novel Red Planet into its Hall of Fame. This is one of the fortuitous circumstances in which the book inducted was both an decent example of the libertarian ideology and also a very good book. Red Planet also just happens to be one of my favorite of Heinlein's juvenile novels, so for me, that's an additional bonus.

CLD (Collective Landing Detachment) by Victor Milán
