2010 Prometheus Award Nominees

Location: Aussiecon 4 in Melbourne, Australia.

Comments: In 2010, Harry Turtledove had a good year at the Prometheus Awards, garnering two nominations for Liberating Atlantis and The United States of Atlantis, both books from his Atlantis series. While these are both good books, the "libertarian" theme in them is fairly minor, while the changed geography is quite prominent, meaning that, once again, the Libertarian Futurist Society's nominations for the Prometheus Award seem to be a clear indication of just how thin the ranks of works of libertarian fiction really are.
