Καλά όλα αυτά, αλλά για βραβευμένο βιβλίο, λίγο άπατο δεν πάει σε κριτικές στο Αμαζον; Όχι πως είναι πανάκεια στον χώρο της κριτικής, αλλά οι μέτριες βαθμολογίες με θορύβησαν, όπως και η αισθητή απουσία των πεντάστερων, που τόσο εύκολα δίνονται συνήθως.

 

 

4 αστεράκια έχει και στα δύο amazon. Εγώ δεν δίνω τόση σημασία στα reviews στο amazon όπου ο καθένας γράφει τον πόνο του και συχνά οι κριτικές είναι πολύ ελαφριές και βιαστικές. Ειδικά για ένα τόσο ιδεολογικό βιβλίο. Αν κάποιος πιστεύει ότι ζούμε στον καλύτερο δυνατό κόσμο και ότι η περιώνυμη οικονομία της αγοράς αποτελεί την καλύτερη επιλογή για το μέλλον της ανθρωπότητας τότε έιναι λογικό να μην συμπαθήσει αυτό το βιβλίο. Οσο για τον Mieville είναι πολύ καλός συγγραφέας αλλά ποτέ δεν κατάφερε να με συγκινήσει με τα θέματα του και τις ιστορίες του.

Ανακοινωθηκε το shortlist του BSFA (british science fiction association) award

 

Φαίνεται λίγο περίεργο το οτι το βιβλίο του Bacigalupi είναι στην λίστα αλλά στην βρεττανία κυκλοφόρησε το 2010.

  • The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin
  • Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal
  • Who Fears Death by Nnedi Okorafor

Πιθανότατα 4 στα 6 (αν και δεν είμαι 100% βέβαιος ότι είναι και τα 4 αυτά φάνταζι, προκύπτει από μικρές αναφορές που διάβασα βιαστικά). Μάλιστα και οι 4 συγγραφείς είναι γυναίκες, όπως είναι οι 5 στους 6 συγγραφείς των υποψήφιων μυθιστορημάτων, κάνοντας το nebula γυναικεία υπόθεση (η πέμπτη γυναίκα είναι η Κόνι Γουίλις). Επιπλέον, οι τρεις πρώτες στη λίστα παραπάνω (Hobson, Jemish, Kowal) εμφανίζονται με το πρώτο (!) τους μυθιστόρημα.

Το τελευταίο διάστημα το βραβείο Άρθουρ Κλαρκ διάβασα ότι έχει κάποιες δυσκολίες (οικονομικής φύσης μάλλον), αλλά βλέπω ότι προχωρά κανονικά και στα βραβεία του 2011. Αφορά εφ μυθιστορήματα που είχαν πρώτη κυκλοφορία από εκδοτικό της Αγγλίας. Κάθε χρόνο ο νικητής συγγραφέας παίρνει τόσες λίρες όσο το έτος: Ο φετινός νικητής δηλαδή θα λάβει 2011 λίρες και θα ανακοινωθεί τέλη Απριλίου.

 

Να και τα μυθιστορήματα που κέρδισαν την προηγούμενη δεκαετία.

 

  • 2001: Perdido Street Station by China Miéville
    2002: Bold As Love by Gwyneth Jones
    2003: The Separation by Christopher Priest
    2004: Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson
    2005: Iron Council by China Miéville
    2006: Air by Geoff Ryman
    2007: Nova Swing by M. John Harrison
    2008: Black Man by Richard Morgan
    2009: Song of Time by Ian R. MacLeod
    2010: The City and the City by China Miéville

Βρίσκω την ευκαιρία που ο Μορτ κοιμάται επειδή χτες ως τις 04:00 προσπαθούσε να τελειώσει το 42ο βιβλίο του από τα 100 must read scifi, και σας αναγγέλλω το νικητή του Locus για best scifi novel: Το διπλό Blackout/Allclear της Γουίλις. Best fantasy novel, Kraken, του Μιεβιλ. Καλύτερο περιοδικό, Asimov's.

 

Παρεμπιπτόντως, το βιβλίο της Γουίλις ήδη πήρε Νέμπιουλα και Λόκους, είναι υποψήφιο για Κάμπελ και Χιούγκο... Αυτό είναι που λέμε «σάρωσε»;
