Saturday - 03/20/2010 – NWSFS’s P.K. Dick Social

Join us at William and Sally’s house in Federal Way, with the sneak preview of the P.K. Dick Finalists and a spirited discussion of their work! The judges of the 2009 Philip K. Dick Award and the Philadelphia SF Society are pleased to announce seven nominated works that comprise the final ballot for the award:
  • BITTER ANGELS by C. L. Anderson (Ballantine Books/Spectra)
  • THE PRISONER by Carlos J. Cortes (Ballantine Books/Spectra)
  • THE REPOSSESSION MAMBO by Eric Garcia (Harper)
  • THE DEVIL’S ALPHABET by Daryl Gregory (Del Rey)
  • CYBERABAD DAYS by Ian McDonald (Pyr)

  • PROPHETS by S. Andrew Swann (DAW Books)
First prize and any special citations will be announced on Friday, April 2, 2010 at Norwescon 33 at the Doubletree Seattle Airport Hotel, SeaTac, Washington.

The social will begin around 5:00 P.M. and continue until around 10pm. As usual, this is a potluck; William will be roasting a turkey for one of the main dishes.  Side dishes that complement and/or add are always welcomed.
