Transition is a 2010 Campbell Award Finalist

Iain [M] Banks’ current novel, Transition, has been named as a finalist for the prestigious 2010 John W. Campbell Memorial Award.

From the announcement on the Awards website:

The Award will be presented during the Campbell Conference Awards Banquet at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, as the focal point of a weekend of discussions about the writing, illustration, publishing, teaching, and criticism of science fiction.

It looks like a particularly strong Finalists list this year, although of course we’re all rooting for a Transition win.
