McCammon Nominated for Lifetime Achievement

It's still a far cry from the level of recognition he deserves, but author Robert R. McCammon has been nominated for a 2006 Southeastern Science Fiction Achievement Award by the online magazine scifidimensions. The press release appearing on McCammon's Web site shows him as a nominee in the category of "Lifetime Achievement in SF/F/H," alongside Poppy Z. Brite, William S. Gibson, and Jack McDevitt.

McCammon's site also point's out that he walked away with the "Best Novel" award in 2003 for his 2002 novel, "Speaks the Nightbird"--which isn't SF, F, or H but is one of the best damn books of McCammon's impressive career, maybe the best. Anyone willing to fork over a $7 membership fee will be able to vote on the nominees through June and help ensure that he snags his second award from scifidimensions.--Pete Mesling
