Prometheus Award Winners

In 1979, science fiction writer L. Neil Smith created the Prometheus Awards, to honor libertarian fiction. A panel selected F. Paul Wilson's Wheels Within Wheels as the best novel, and a gold coin then worth $2,500 was presented to Wilson. Due to the cost of the award, and lack of a formal organization, the Prometheus Awards fell into limbo the following year.

Founded in 1982 to provide encouragement to science fiction writers whose books examine the meaning of freedom, the Libertarian Futurist Society revived the Prometheus Award for best libertarian novel of the year.

Josh Utterback Is this list for Promethus Award Winners (like the title says) or for Promethus Hall of Fame Winners? They are different awards. Most of the books on this list did NOT win the Promethus Award but are in the Promethus Hall of Fame, including 7 of the top 10.
