    Die gesamte Liste ist deutlich länger, es gibt noch etliche Kategorien mehr, die ich aus Gründen der Übersichtlichkeit hier jetzt einfach weggelassen habe. Man kann besagte Gesamtliste allerdings da einsehen, wo auch ich meine Informationen her habe: Hugo Awards 2019 (und Retro Hugo Awards 1944).


    Ich freue mich für für so ziemlich alle Nomierten, drücke allerdings vor allem einer ganz besonders die Daumen. :daumen3: :biggrin2:


    (Wenn ich gelegentlich mal Zeit habe, verlinke ich oben noch die online lesbaren Geschichten; heute macht mir das ehrlich gesagt zu viel Arbeit ... :floet:)

    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.

  • Argl. "Nomierten" ... das sollte natürlich "Nominierten" heißen. Aber da der Fauxpas jetzt eh schon in einem Zitat verewigt ist ... bleibt er halt stehen.


    Immerhin habe ich ja nicht "Normierten" geschrieben. :smoke:

    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.

  • Ach, ganz so eng würde ich es nicht sehen. :achsel:


    (Wir können über das Thema*, das derzeit u.a. bei Twitter und in den beiden SF-Foren für ... äh ... gesteigerte Postingfrequenzen sorgt, natürlich auch hier gerne diskutieren, wenn Bedarf besteht. Aber dann bitte in einem eigenen Thread, denn der hier sollte den Hugos vorbehalten bleiben. Und bitte auch erst ab Montag, denn Kaeferl und ich sind übers verlängerte Wochenende beide unterwegs, und dummerweise auch beide in Gegenden, für die der Begriff "Funkloch" hätte erfunden werden müssen, wenn es ihn nicht schon gäbe. Denn auch wenn ich vollstes Vertrauen in die Forumosen habe, dass eine derartige Diskussion nicht aus dem Ruder läuft, wäre es mir doch lieber, wenn jemand mit Mod-Kompetenzen hier regelmäßig reinschauen könnte bzw. würde.)


    * - für alle, die's noch nicht mitgekriegt haben, das Thema könnte man grob mit "deutschsprachige SF-Autorinnen und ihre (Nicht-)Sichtbarkeit in der Szene und allgemein" umschreiben, denke ich. (Und nochmals die Bitte: Falls ihr etwas zu dem Thema sagen wollt und nicht bis Montag warten könnt, macht einen eigenen Thread dafür auf, okay? Danke.)

    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.
