For those of you who are Sci-fi readers, and have not yet read anything by Robert J. Sawyer, I urge you to try him. He has written 17 novels and almost all of them have won awards of one sort or another.
He's won the Hugo, the Nebula and Canada's own Aurora awards. Check out his website and his Blog. And he has just won China's Galaxy award.
I'm usually check his blog out every now and then, so I thought it was time I supported one of my favourite sci-fi authors. The Neanderthals series is the best.
