Quill & Quire, the Canadian publishing trade journal,
recently released its first-ever list of
“The CanLit 30: The most influential, innovative, and just
plain powerful people in Canadian publishing.”


Only three authors made the 30-person list: Margaret Atwood,
Douglas Coupland, and Robert J. Sawyer. The write-up
about Rob says:


According to the Locus Index to Science Fiction Awards,
Robert J. Sawyer is the #1 all-time worldwide leader in number of
award wins as a science-fiction or fantasy novelist

(second place goes to China Miéville; Stephen King,
Ursula K. LeGuin, and Connie Willis are tied for third place).


Rob is also the
#1 all-time leader in number of award nominations as a science-fiction
or fantasy novelist
(second place goes to Stephen King).


In June 2016, Rob was inducted into the Order of Canada, the
highest civilian honor bestowed by the Canadian government.

[Science Fiction Writer Robert J. Sawyer]

awards for best novel of the year:

and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award

(the full list of such winners: Paolo Bacigalupi, David Brin,
Arthur C. Clarke, Joe Haldeman, Frederik Pohl, Kim Stanley Robinson,
Robert J. Sawyer, and Connie Willis), and he’s the first author in thirty
years to receive a Lifetime Achievement Aurora Award.
