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 Gibson’s novel [Pattern Recognition] is about the moment that today turns into tomorrow, Neal Stephenson’s Quicksilver is about the moment that yesterday turned into today.
