Premiile Hugo (sf)

Premiile Hugo sunt echivalentul premiilor Pulitzer (SUA) sau Booker (UK) – adica sunt acordate de membrii societatii mondiale de science-fiction (World Science Fiction Convention) la conventiile lor anuale. Ar fi multe de povestit despre aceste premii – cum ca ele au fost fondate la moartea legendarului Hugo Gernbach sau ca se acorda prin votul secreta al fanilor care se aduna o data pe an la cea mai mare manifestare science fiction din toata lumea… Cert este ca ele reprezinta o masura a valorii acordate de fani aparitiilor din anul anterior – in opozitie cu premiile Nebula, care se acorda de catre critica de specialitate. Nominalizarile rezulta in urma unui balot tinut pe email de membrii activi. Ele sunt apoi masurate in functie de fiecare lista de vot si de ordinea din acea lista. Exista si un prag minim, sub care romanele sunt eliminate si numaratoarea este reluata, pana cand un castigator clar este desemnat/.

Desigur, veti constata ca majoritatea autorilor sunt americani sau englezi, ceea ce intr-un fel este firesc pentru ca ei sunt fondatorii genului. Sunt convins ca daca va place sf-ul ati citit sau veti citi macar cateva dintre titlurile de mai jos… Pentru mai multe referinte am incercat sa introduc si anul traducerii in limba romana, ca si detaliile aparitiei. Lectura placuta!
