I take a special interest in the Philip K. Dick awards, since I was a winner in 2009 and a judge in 2011. The award is given to the best paperback original science fiction novel published in the United States. This year’s winner was just announced: the book is LOST EVERYTHING by Brian Francis Slattery. Nice to see a fellow Tor author take home the prize!
Here is the book’s description:
In the not-distant-enough future, a man takes a boat trip up the Susquehanna River with his most trusted friend, intent on reuniting with his son. But the man is pursued by an army, and his own harrowing past; and the familiar American landscape has been savaged by war and climate change until it is nearly unrecognizable. Lost Everything is a stunning novel about family and faith, what we are afraid may come to be, and how to wring hope from hopelessness.
