I ovde 8:5...  :'(

Mada... Deluje da među Bukerovcima ima bar 3-4 SF-a... Više nego u Hugu...  :'( :'( :'(

Da, izgleda veoma interesantno. Ako si uspela da do sada to nekako nabaviš, seti se mene…  ;)

Nije to još gotovo, koliko znam.

Hugo Awards 2019

Lodestar Award For Best Young Adult Book
Winner: Children of Blood and Bone, Tomi Adeyemi (Henry Holt; Macmillan)

Ovome nagrada?

Mislim, ima tu dobrog, ali ima i početničkog pisanja. Eventualno može da dobije neku nagradu za roman prvenac (ako se ne nađe bolji te godine).

Ne brini odviše, saživeće se već unuci sa tom situacijom… samo nama je ovde i sada teško.  :'(

Enivejz, pošto žanr stvarno sve slabije proizvodi literaturu za odrasle, možda je pametnije da ga ostavimo deci i ne-odraslima, a mi se okrenemo matici… u to ime, evo Bukera:

Šira lista od 13 romana u konkurenciji napravljena je odabirom između 151 romana objavljenih u UK ili Irskoj:

Margaret Atwood (Kanada): "The Testaments" (Vintage, Chatto & Windus)
Kevin Barry (Irska): "Night Boat to Tangier" (Canongate Books)
Oyinkan Braithwaite (UK/Nigerija): "My Sister, The Serial Killer" (Atlantic Books)
Lucy Ellmann (SAD/UK): "Ducks, Newburyport" (Galley Beggar Press)
Bernardine Evaristo (UK): "Girl, Woman, Other" (Hamish Hamilton)
John Lanchester (UK): "The Wall" (Faber & Faber)

Vesti iz Fantastike / jedna enciklopedija fantazi i horora
« Last post by Aleksandar_B_Nedeljkovic on August 19, 2019, 06:33:17 PM »
Цењени   ,
(1)   у “Блицу” је данас (понедељак 19. август 2019) на стр. 22, Слободан В. Ивков објавио приказ једног издања романа: Лазар Комарчић, Један разорен ум, издавач “Порталибрис”, 2016. Није СФ, не, али, то је Комарчић… а и има елементе фантастике. (Али није СФ.)

(2)  Можда ће ово бити интересантно:  постоји ова књига, ево библиографског податка:

Don D’Amassa 2006, Encyclopedia of Fantasy and Horror Fiction. New York, Checkmark Books, ISBN 0-8160-6924-7

дакле Дон Д’Амаса, година 2006, Енциклопедија фантазијске и хорор фикције. Као што видимо, већ у наслову се јасно каже да је то о та друга два жанра, не о СФ.

(Узгред, дигресија: Д’Амаса каже, у чланку на стр. 355-356, да је новела Хенри Џејмса “Окретај завртња”, енгл. “The Turn of the Screw”, из године 1898, “јак такмичар за титулу најбоље-икад приче о духовима”. Баш се питам шта би о томе рекли експерти за приче о духовима.)

(Узгред, и друга дигресија: у овој енциклопедији, одреднице су поређане на збуњујући начин, наиме, јесу по редоследу енглеског алфабета, али, неке на основу презимена аутора, а неке на основу наслова; па је тако, на пример, Хенри Џејмс, на енглеском Henry James, стављен после Мери Шели, зато што је она наведена под словом “S” (for Shelley), а он је под словом “T” (for Turn).

Е сад, ту је наравно чланак о Мери Шели и, Д’Амаса каже (стр. 315-316) да Франкенштајна “разноврсно својатају критичари хорора, и критичари научне фантастике, ови други на основу тога што је оживљавање Франкенштајновог монструма резултат научних принципа а не натприродног” (“variously claimed by horror and science fiction critics, the latter because the animation of Frankenstein’s monster is the result of scientific principles rather than the supernatural”).

Дабоме. Резултат науке, а не магије. То је барем апсолутно јасно.

Swanwick's third fantasy (The Dragons of Babel, 2008, etc.) set in an industrialized Faerie bristling with weird entities.

Curious readers will learn that this is just one of many worlds (Aerth, or Earth, is another) that are "different energy states of the same place...the surfaces of an n-dimensional tesseract." Now you know. Caitlin Sans Merci serves in Her Absent Majesty's Dragon Corps as the pilot of a malevolent iron dragon, 7708. The Corps' purpose is to steal children's souls from Aerth so they can be embedded in soulless high elf bodies; Cat herself is one such. As her story opens, she returns from a raid discovering that somehow she's acquired a secret stowaway in her cranium, the mysterious Helen V. from Aerth. Soon, Cat's half brother, Fingolfinrhod, a full-blooded elf, will inherit House Sans Merci from their dying father. Fingolfinrhod, appalled at the prospect, instead vanishes (after warning Cat of a conspiracy against her) into what Cat will later learn is the city Ys, drowned long ago beneath the waves. Cat, framed by her superiors and betrayed by 7708, flees, determined to clear her name and reclaim her position. The scintillating narrative, sprinkled with black humor, bulges with symbols and allusions to topics in science, alchemy, magic, folklore, mythology, fantasy/science fiction, and literature. Remarkably, all the major and most of the minor characters are female, not to mention an alluringly innocent protagonist. A few signs warn that Swanwick's extraordinary inventiveness may be running down, with recycled characters and scenarios and too-frequent passages where descriptions lapse into itemized recitations, like laundry lists. Still, these are minor blemishes in what is primarily another bravura performance, with a surprise ending that, after a moment's reflection, isn't so surprising after all.

Discworld meets Faust. They do not like each other. Philip Pullman picks up the pieces.

Recursion by Blake Crouch

Wayward Pines and Dark Matter author Crouch has a knack for accessible science fiction—that is, he writes stories that even casual readers of sf will enjoy. The same is true of Recursion. Here, a groundbreaking new technology—one that allows people to relive every detail of their past—is abused, thus causing a new affliction called False Memory Syndrome, in which its victims are driven mad with memories of lives they've never lived. Recursion is a fast-paced thriller with a cool science fictional premise that anyone can enjoy.

Newman's Drachenfels (written in 1989 under than pseudonym Jack Yeovil and newly reissued under the Warhammer Horror imprint) is a vampire story that the author himself in a recent video additionally characterizes as a backstage murder mystery. The story imagines a world twenty years after a malevolent force is defeated. It's set in a haunted castle, the location for a theatrical group's production of that great evil's demise. The castle is the fortress of Drachenfels, the very site where he was killed. But even after twenty years, evil remains. Newman's story is about what happens to heroes who are still holding onto the past while it cleverly puts unconventional heroes in an intriguing locked room mystery.

In this science fiction thriller, set in the not-too-distant future, automated cars are in common use and no cause for any concern. Until one day, when eight people—including an illegal immigrant, a faded TV star, a pregnant woman, and a wife fleeing her abusive husband—find themselves locked inside their cars, their predetermined destination changed, and a voice telling them they are going to die. Their ensuing panic is broadcast to the world from cameras hidden in their cars. Used as a (if you'll pardon the expression) vehicle to examine the effects of social media and mob mentality, this taut thriller is being described as "an episode of Black Mirror meets Agatha Christie by way of Speed."
