Ma, šalio sam se, kao što znaš... Pročitao sam dosta iz Dozoisa za vreme letovanja. Ima tu prave naučne fantastike. Povremeno i dobre.
Mada si u pravu što se tiče ozbiljnosti.  Većini stvari se ranije pristupalo znatno ozbiljnije, pa su i rezultati bili ozbiljniji.

i evo nam i goodreads nagrade za SF:


Artemis by Andy Weir
Readers clearly love Andy Weir to the moon and back. After winning Best Science Fiction in the 2014 Goodreads Choice Awards for his thrilling debut, The Martian, he receives the same honor for his second book. Part space adventure, part exhilarating heist tale, Artemis follows young smuggler Jazz Bashara as she lands in the middle of conspiracy on the first and only city on the moon.

Dakle, moram reći da me Weir poprilično razočarao sa ovim romanom, ali dobro, šta da se radi... treba nam i romana za plažu. :)

ostali pažnje vredni naslovi koji su bili u trci su:

Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel
Thrawn by Timothy Zahn
American War by Omar El Akkad
Home by Nnedi Okorafor
Borne by Jeff VanderMeer
Babylon's Ashes by James S.A. Corey
