Jack McDevitt Takes Best Novel Nebula Award

Mr. McDevitt came away from the Science Fiction Writers Assoc. Nebula Awards weekend carrying the award for Best Novel for Seeker. I did a review of it a while back. He richly deserves this award, although in my opinion, it should have been for The Hercules Text or A Talent For War. But, since he didn't get it for those prime examples of speculative fiction, he gets it for this one. I guess that kinda balances everything out.

Its an excellent book and well worth the cost of the paperback. For you collectors: Don't bother. A signed first edition just isn't available on the open market right now. I was lucky enough to obtain a signed first-edition before he won this award. But mine is not for sale.
