2013 Philip K. Dick Award: Distinguished Science Fiction Paperback

Lost Everything by Brian Francis Slattery (Tor Books) was awarded the 2013 Philip K. Dick Award for distinguished original science fiction paperback published for the first time during 2012 in the U.S.A.   Read the announcement at SF Signal

From the author of the critically acclaimed literary SF novels Spaceman Blues and Liberation comes an incandescent and thrilling post-apocalyptic tale in the vein of 1984 or The Road.

In the not-distant-enough future, a man takes a boat trip up the Susquehanna River with his most trusted friend, intent on reuniting with his son. But the man is pursued by an army, and his own harrowing past; and the familiar American landscape has been savaged by war and climate change until it is nearly unrecognizable.

Lost Everything is a stunning novel about family and faith, what we are afraid may come to be, and how to wring hope from hopelessness.
