    Von den nominierten SF- und Fantasy-Romanen sind bereits etliche auch auf Deutsch erschienen (oder werden in den nächsten Monaten erscheinen - die entsprechenden Angaben habe ich mir aus Zeit- und anderen Gründen erspart ;) ), bei den Horror-, Young-Adult- und Erstlings-Romanen sieht es düsterer aus (wobei ich davon ausgehe, dass wir einige Sachen aus der Kategorie "First Novel" früher oder später noch zu sehen kriegen werden).


    - Fortsetzung folgt -

    She struggled ever closer, her breath sleeting out in crackling plumes that sank down in sparkling ice crystals. It reminded her of her youth, the nights out on the tundra, when the first snows came, when clouds shivered and shed their diamond skins and the world grew so still, so breathless and perfect, that she felt that time itself was but moments from freezing solid – to hold her for ever in that place, hold her youth, hold tight her dreams and ambitions, her memories of the faces she loved – her mother, her father, her kin, her lovers. No one would grow old, no one would die and fall away from the path, and the path itself, why, it would never end.
