2007 Clarke Award Nominees

Location: Sci-Fi London at the Apollo Piccadilly Circus in London, United Kingdom.

Comments: As I get to the more recent Clarke Award years, one would think that I would be more familiar with the authors and works that have been nominated. After all, these are books that have been published in the very recent past by authors who are often my contemporaries. And yet, in most cases I haven't read anything by the authors who are nominated for the recent awards, or if I have it has been short fiction that I haven't mentally connected to the author in question. The landscape of recent science fiction is so vast, that even someone like me, who reads books at a rate of more than a hundred per year, simply can't keep up with all of it.
