And about time, too. Niven is one of the most influential authors of science fiction and fantasy of the last century. He’s written or cowritten such classics as Ringworld and The Mote in God’s Eye. My most recent reviews of his books are The Goliath Stone with Matthew Joseph Harrington (review here) and Bowl of Heaven with Gregory Benford (review here; really need to read Shipstar).
Niven will be presented with the Award at the Nebula Awards Banquet this Junes. For more details, the SFWA press release is here.
Adventures Fantastic would like to offer Mr. Niven congratulations on being named a Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master. Well done, sir. Well done.
