Terminal Mind Nominated for Philip K. Dick Award

Big news about Terminal Mind!  I just got word that my book has been nominated for the Philip K. Dick award, which is given each year by the Philip K. Dick Memorial Trust and the Philadelphia Science Fiction Society for the best original paperback science fiction novel of the year.  Now, as you know, most Big Authors publish their books in hardback first, and so wouldn’t be eligible for this award.  But it’s not limited to first-time authors by any means, and has been won in the past by well-known writers like William Gibson, Tim Powers, Rudy Rucker, Robert Charles Wilson, Stephen Baxter, David Farland, Jack McDevitt, and Kim Stanley Robinson.  So I’m pretty psyched!  But I haven’t won yet…

Being “nominated” means the book was one of the top six vote-getters in the initial round… kind of like it works for the Academy Awards.  The winner won’t be announced until April 10, at a science fiction convention in Seattle (Norwescon).  So keep your fingers crossed!


David is a science fiction and fantasy author, which gives him the freedom to explore far beyond the limits of real life and the everyday. His books explores themes that skirt the edges of science and religion, such as human origins, the nature of truth, the certainty of death, and the nature of the soul. He does all his writing at home, where he lives with his wife and seven children. It’s a lively and clamorous place, full of fun, love, and chaos. His latest novel is SUPERPOSITION, a quantum physics murder mystery with the same mind-bending, breathless action as films like INCEPTION and MINORITY REPORT. His other works include the Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel TERMINAL MIND, the historical fantasy QUINTESSENCE (Tor, 2013) and its sequel, QUINTESSENCE SKY.
