Pulitzer Smiles on SF this Year

So, an SF novel wins the Pulitzer Prize this year: Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD. The novel has sold more than a million copies. (Oprah's backing no doubt had something to do with that.)

And Ray Bradbury, the esteemed author of classic works such as FAHRENHEIT 451 and THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES and THE ILLUSTRATED MAN, to name just three of so many, gets special kudos for “his distinguished, prolific and deeply influential career as an unmatched author of science fiction and fantasy.”

The Mir likes when SF gets its props. Yes, indeedy.
