Arthur C Clarke award report
The official site for the Arthur C Clarke award has a report of the evening. Also online is the full speech from the Administrator, Paul Kincaid, praising all six of the shortlisted novels. About Quicksilver he says
If Gibsonâ€™s novel [Pattern Recognition] is about the moment that today turns into tomorrow, Neal Stephensonâ€™s Quicksilver is about the moment that yesterday turned into today.
