Kings of the High Frontier Wins Prometheus Award
By Anders Monsen
Special to The Libertarian Enterprise
Victor Koman is the winner of the 1997 Prometheus Award for best
Libertarian science fiction novel for his book, Kings of the High Frontier.
This marks an unprecedented third Prometheus Award for Koman, the
previous two being for The Jehovah Contract and Solomon's Knife.
What makes this year's award especially notable is that Kings is
only available in an electronic format, published by J. Neil Schulman
Perhaps no other book has gained so much attention and come this
far while only available in this fashion. You have but to read the
list of endorsements at the publisher's site to know the impact this
book has on its readers.
The winner of this year's Hall of Fame Award was Robert Heinlein
for Methuselah's Children. Virginia Heinlein acknowledged the award
on her late husband's behalf.
