More Praise for "Tenbrook of Mars," a Novella by Dean McLaughlin

Author, editor, and critic Jason Sanford is the latest high-profile individual who believes “Tenbrook of Mars,” a novella by Dean McLaughlin that was published in the July/August 2008 issue of Analog magazine, should be considered for the Hugo and Nebula Awards.

Recall that back in October, critic Rich Horton called “Tenbrook of Mars” this year’s “best novella by far, and the best story in Analog in some time,” and gave it his Anlab vote. “This is a very moving story of a Martian colony marooned for 20 years, and the engineer who becomes the leader, and pulls them through against all odds until help can arrive,” Horton wrote in summarizing McLaughlin’s work.

Also, the New England Science Fiction Association has “Tenbrook of Mars” on its list of 2008 Hugo Award Recommendations.

A review of Dean McLaughlin’s “Tenbrook of Mars” is posted at The Fix: Short Fiction Review and the July/August 2008 issue of Analog can be purchased through Fictionwise.
