Premiile Retro-Hugo pentru 1938

LONCON3_logo_270wSe pare că în acest an votăm pentru premiile Retro-Hugo din 1938, 1939 fiind anul când s-a desfăşurat prima Convenţie Mondială de Science-Fiction la New-York. Mi-am aruncat privirea peste listele cu apariţiile din 1938, pentru a vedea ce pot nominaliza, dar din păcate dintre romane nu am citit nimic şi nici nu prea mă atrag la lectură titlurile de pe lista.

  1. Eu am citit doar The Sword in the Stone (de fapt am citit The Once and Future King, din care am impresia ca Sword e prima parte), si mi s-a parut foarte bine scrisa. Habar n-aveam ca e asa de veche! E o chestie destul de unica, fantezie arturiana cu un umor subtil… in orice caz, nu ma asteptam la asa ceva cand am inceput volumul. (Celelalte parti din Once and Future King sunt mai serioase.)

  2. Nu am citit nimic, dar daca ar fi sa aleg ceva as incepe cu Galactic Patrol – E E “Doc” Smith si The Legion of Time – Jack Williamson. De ele am auzit ca ar fi cat de cat interesante, tinand cont de vreme cand au fost scrise.

  3. Cam la astea 3 carti m-am gandit si eu. Gata, am facut rost de ele. Multumesc 🙂

  4. The Once and Future King a aparut si in romana:

    Eu am citit-o pe la 13 ani si mi-a placut. Da pe vremea aia imi placeau multe 🙂

  5. Out of the Silent Planet – C S Lewis sigur va castiga

  6. Ha! The Hobbit a fost publicat in 1938 in SUA! Este clar cine va castiga.
