Και το Way of Kings δεν υπήρχε πουθενά.....

 

E πως να υπάρχει αφού είναι fantasy. Το Hugo είναι αποκλειστικά για επιστημονική φαντασία.

 

Τα Hugos τα δίνει το World Science fiction Society για τα καλύτερα Science Fiction αλλά και Fantasy έργα. Για παράδειγμα ένα από τα υποψήφια βιβλία φέτος , ήταν το Hundred thousand Kingdoms , ένα πολύ χειρότερο fantasy βιβλίο από το Way of Kings (Για να μην αναφέρω το Towers of Midnight που τα πατάει και τα δύο) . Σε γενικές γραμμές βέβαια τα βραβεία είναι πολύ sci-fi heavy. Το τελευταίο δυνατό fantasy που ήταν υποψήφιο είναι το Feast for Crows το 2006 .

 

Το Way of Kings φέτος ήταν μέσα στην δεκάδα (αν δεν κάνω λάθος ), αλλά δεν ήταν στο shortlist των υποψήφιων. Κρίμα γιατί άν και έχει αρκετά προβλήματα , το Way of Kings είναι το καλύτερο νέο epic fantasy εδώ και πάρα πολύ καιρό.

Λάθος, Hugo έχει πάρει και το Harry Potter, και το American Gods. Και τα δύο είναι fantasy.

 

@Dimzar: όσο για το Way of Kings, το είπες και μόνος σου ότι έχει προβλήματα το βιβλίο.

 

Δεν έχω διαβάσει το βιβλίο της Willis οπότε δεν μπορώ να πώ τίποτα για το αν αξίζει ή όχι.

Μία φώτο όλων των νικητών του Hugo Award εκτός όπως λέει και η λεζάντα από...  "All the Hugo winners. Except for Paul Cornell, who sensibly ditched out for first crack at the food." Την ανέβασε η Elizabeth Bear στο tumblr της.

 

Στο βάθος όρθιο πίσω από τον καθιστό Μάρτιν βλέπουμε το "The Hound".  

"And Game of Thrones broke Doctor Who's long winning streak in the "Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form" category. George R.R. Martin accepted, accompanied by actor Rory McCann (Sandor Clegane), who wore a kilt. And in his acceptance speech, Martin said we're in a golden age for science fiction and fantasy on screen."

 

Εδώ η μαρτυρία ενός μέλους της ομάδας του Clarkesworld: "Sitting right in front of me, literally three inches away as I was standing up, was George R.R. Martin. It was just like ... I mean, there are lots of different writers of all different levels all around, but he won for Game of Thrones TV show, so it was pretty mind-blowing. Also, he brought with him the actor who plays the Hound on the show, so this 6' 8" Scottish dude is standing right next to me -- I'm squashed up against him during the photo shoot. So just completely unreal."

 

post-2544-0-77805100-1378588397_thumb.jpg

 

Επίσης ο Ken Liu δεν παρεβρέθηκε στην τελετή και το βραβείο του παρέλαβε ο Alex Shvartsman που έβαλε τον G.R.R.Martin να το... ευλογήσει!!! Βλ. εικόνα πιο κάτω.

 

post-2544-0-70434200-1378588630_thumb.jpg

 

"This is George R. R. Martin, blessing Ken Liu's Hugo award. This means that, for the next year, Ken will have to randomly and mercilessly kill off his characters." Έγραψε ο Άλεξ στο fb.

 

Ήταν ένα μικρό ρεπορτάζ από τα Hugo awards. :p Πίσω σε εσάς.

Κρίμα...

Κι εγώ ο πτωχός τω πνεύματι, νόμιζα ότι την αμφισβήτηση του κύρους

των βραβείων την είχα σε αποκλειστικότητα...

Θέλω να διαβάσω δυο φορές το άρθρο πριν το σχολιάσω, ωστόσο το Hugo το αντιμετωπίζω συνήθως με κάποια αμφιβολία, λόγω του ότι ψηφίζει το ευρύ κοινό. Όχι ότι έχω κάτι με το κοινό και τις... δημοκρατικές διαδικασίες... Αλλά χμ... στη λογοτεχνία; Σας εμπνέει εμπιστοσύνη ένα βραβείο οι κριτές του οποίου δεν έχουν διαβάσει όλα τα υποψήφια βιβλία; (νομίζω ότι τα μέλη δεν έχουν σχετική υποχρέωση, αν και προφανώς παρακινούνται να το κάνουν). Έχω την αίσθηση ότι μια επιτροπή συγγραφέων και επαγγελματιών κριτικών θα κάνει πιθανότατα καλύτερη δουλειά. Από κει και πέρα, η πλήρης απαξίωση των βραβείων δεν με βρίσκει σύμφωνο. Σε γενικές γραμμές (με πολλές -αναπόφευκτα- εξαιρέσεις) ένα καλό βιβλίο ενδέχεται να βρει ευκολότερα τη θέση του από ένα προφανώς κακό είτε στη short list , είτε στο βάθρο (όπως κάλλιστα κινδυνεύει να θαφτεί ένα εξαιρετικό και καινοτόμο βιβλίο που βρίσκεται μπροστά από την εποχή του και τις αναγνωστικές της συνήθειες).

 

Λέγοντας αυτά, κάθε βραβείο από τα δεκάδες που «κυκλοφορούν» ετησίως έχει την αξία και τα όριά του. Εγώ τα χρησιμοποιώ ως ένδειξη, ως ανακάλυψη ή υπενθύμιση (για τα παλιότερα) του τι ίσως με ενδιαφέρει να διαβάσω. Πολλές φορές μέσω των βραβείων έχω βρει πολύ καλά βιβλία, όπως πχ. το China Mountain Zhang της McHugh, που βρέθηκε στις short list των Hugo & Nebula, ενώ κέρδισε τρία άλλα σημαντικά βραβεία -έξοχες ιδέες, χαρακτήρες και μοναδική ατμόσφαιρα. Πάνω από όλα, καλή λογοτεχνία. Δεν υπήρχε όμως ούτε μια πιθανότητα στις χίλιες να ακούσω για τη συγκεκριμένη συγγραφέα (που κινείται στο περιθώριο και δεν εκδίδεται από μεγάλους οίκους) ή το βιβλίο της, αν δεν διάβαζα τις λίστες... Γιατί λοιπόν να απαξιώσω σώνει και καλά τα βραβεία;

Κανείς δεν είπε ότι ένα βραβείο μπορεί να απαξιωθεί πλήρως. Και εγώ έχω βρεί ιστορίες που αξίζουνε και έχω μάθει συγγραφείς. Όμως αυτή εδώ η χρονιά φαίνεται πολύ δύσκολη για την αντικειμενικότητα του θεσμού, όση μπορεί να υπάρχει σε ένα βραβείο. Πίο δύσκολη απ' ότι συνήθως.

Πολύ ωραίο παραμύθι το διήγημα “Jackalope Wives”by Ursula Vernon. Το νόημα μου θύμισε και λίγο Ούρσουλα Λε Γκεν.

Αν έχετε να χάσετε μισή ώρα, διαβάστε το κείμενο και τα σχόλια. Φτάστε τουλάχιστον ως το post του Wright... Για να θυμόμαστε ότι πίσω από ένα βιβλίο που μπορεί να μας άρεσε (δεν έχω διαβάσει Wright, γενικώς μιλώ) μπορεί να κρύβονται απίστευτες αντιλήψεις.
