Harry Harrison SFWA's next Grand Master

Now if your scratching your head on this one, no it's not wrong, it's just that the SFWA, I guess in an effort to get a jump on NEXT year's award season, has announced that Harry Harrison will be awarded the the very select Grand Master better known as the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master.

As the SFWA site describes it:
  • The title Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master is bestowed upon a living author for a lifetime's achievement in science fiction and/or fantasy. Nominations for recognition as a Grand Master are made by the president of SFWA; the final selection must be approved by a majority of the SFWA.
All kidding aside, I hope the early announcement doesn't mean that they know something we don't. Smack me for even thinking it..... Don't he look like he should be hosting Mythbusters?
