Hugo Awards 2019: Die Gewinner

Hugo Awards 2019: Die Gewinner

Am ver­gan­ge­nen Wochen­en­de wur­den auf dem SF-Welt­con in Dub­lin die dies­jäh­ri­gen Hugo-Awards ver­lie­hen, einer der wich­tigs­ten Aus­zeich­nun­gen im Phan­tas­tik-Bereich überhaupt.

Bemer­kens­wert fin­de ich ins­be­son­de­re, dass Becky Cham­bers WAY­FA­RERS-Rei­he (der ers­te Titel dar­aus war THE LONG WAY TO A SMALL, ANGRY PLANET) als bes­te Serie gewon­nen hat. Und das bei einer Publi­ka­ti­on, die zuerst im Self­pu­bli­shing erschien, weil kein Ver­lag sie auch nur mit der Kneif­zan­ge anfas­sen wollte.

Im Fol­gen­den die Nomi­nier­ten und Gewin­ner, letz­te­re erkennt man an der fet­ten Dar­stel­lung. Gewis­se Kräf­te in der deut­schen Wiki­pe­dia soll­ten auch hier ihr Augen­merk dar­auf legen, wie vie­le Frau­en unter den Gewin­nern sind …
