Charles Gannon

Annapolis, MD
This year’s novel nomination is Chuck Gannon's third, all set in his hard sf series. He also collaborates with Eric Flint in the Ring of Fire series, and has won awards and written best-sellers across the genre and for various imprints/venues. He also worked in game design/writing, and as a scriptwriter/producer in NYC (clients included the U.N., W.H.O, PBS).

Other life credits include being a Distinguished Professor of English (St. Bonaventure), a Fulbright Senior Specialist (5 grants), receving the ALA Choice Award for Outstanding Book in 2006, and serving as a subject matter expert both for NPR, the Discovery Channel, and various intelligence and defense agencies.

But his most important job is as the primary at-home parent for five great kids (one passed), and his most prized affiliation is the one to which he aspired since he was a teenager: the SFWA.
