The Prometheus Awards

The Prometheus Award for Best Novel was created to honor new libertarian fiction, and the Prometheus Hall of Fame Award honors classic libertarian fiction. The Prometheus Awards are hosted by the Libertarian Futurist Society.

This is a list of all of the books that were nominated for these two awards. There are more than 500 books on this list by almost 300 authors, which is enough liberty themed fiction to keep anyone entertained and inspired for a long time.

Finalists are indicated with a single asterisk, *, and winners are indicated with a double asterisk, **.
