Hall of Fame


The Libertarian Futurist Society has chosen its five finalists for the Hall of Fame award for classic works of science fiction/fantasy with libertarian themes. Here are the finalists:

"As Easy as A.B.C.," a short story by Rudyard Kipling (1912)
Courtship Rite, a novel by Donald M. Kingsbury (1982)
Falling Free, a novel by Lois McMaster Bujold (1988)
"'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman," a short story by Harlan Ellison (1965)
"Sam Hall," a short story by Poul Anderson (1953)

These are the five finalists from last year that didn't win then, so we seem to have settled down to a stable list of works we'd like to get around to recognizing. We may be reaching the point where we're not going to discover new neglected classics.

I'm sure I've read all of those except Courtship Rite, though I can't remember offhand what "Sam Hall" was about. I love "As Easy as A.B.C."

Courtship Rite has one of the most perfect sfnal moments of anything I've read, in Oelita the Heretic's reaction to images from the history of Earth.
