Great, Kratman.

I didn't think the Prometheus Award description (" The Prometheus Hall of Fame Award is designed to honor classic libertarian fiction") was that fluffy to start with, but now I'm starting to wonder if there are any books published which potentially couldn't fit into the nominations by having nothing in them some brand of the far-out freedom fringe wouldn't like because it seems like "classic libertarian fiction" is a rather nebulous category.

I hereby suggest the LFS to look at The Book of Mormon, Kallocain, A Perfect Vacuum, OT3 and Babel's classic on the Red Cavalry for next year.

Thanks for the shout out. Although I appreciate that not everyone likes the aesthetics of muscles on women (or men for that matter), its hard to believe that a woman would be criticized for being "too fit" in this age of rising obesity, eating disorders, etc. Especially when said woman is otherwise beautiful, intelligent, educated, accomplished, and *not* in the entertainment industry (as someone who has made her living off image, Madonna is perhaps more fair game).

Do agree that there's probably something going on there about women, strength, boundaries, etc.
