Today, for the third time in the last year, I got email from a new SF author that went more or less like:
“Hi, I’d like to send you a copy of my first novel because [thing you wrote] really inspired me.”
All the novels so far are libertarian SF with rivets on – the good stuff. Amusingly, I don’t think any of these authors knew in advance that I’m a judge for the Prometheus awards,
It’s really gratifying that I’m making this kind of difference.
