    We were lucky enough to attend this ceremony. The introduction offered a comprehensive overview of Tevis’s work, concentrating especially on, well, science fiction and billiards. The reading was from his Nebula-nominated novel MOCKINGBIRD. We had the opportunity to meet his children after the ceremony and they were very gratified by the entire experience.
