On the night before the announcement of this year’s prestigious Philip K. Dick Award winner (at Norwescon 36), we’re pleased to welcome one of the seven finalists, Andri Snaer Magnason, author of the novel, LoveStar (Seven Stories Press, translated from the Icelandic by Victoria Cribb). Written by one of Iceland’s most celebrated young writers, LoveStar was named Novel of the Year by Iceland’s booksellers, and is set in a world in which humankind, freed from wires and devices, has soul mates identified by science.

“Orwell, Vonnegut, and Douglas Adams are felt on every page, though Magnason is never derivative … The sheer wackiness of his oversized imagination is invigorating.”- Publishers Weekly.
