Prometheus Special Award Winners

The Prometheus Special Award could probably be best defined as "things the Libertarian Futurist Society wants to honor that are not novels". Among the handful of winners are two movies, one graphic novel, three anthologies, and a lifetime achievement award. There seems to be no real coherent criteria for choosing works for this category, resulting in what seems to be an almost random assemblage of books and movies tied together only by their libertarian themes. One might argue that this kind of randomized award is more or less in the spirit of libertarianism, but the end result is little more than a chaotic mess.
