Wieder mal eine Preisverleihung. Diesmal die LOCUS AWARDS (mit den üblichen Verdächtigen), die jetzt am Wochenende in Seattle vergeben wurden. Die großen Gewinner? Scalzi, Stross, Miéville.
Manchmal ist es interessanter zu sehen, wer nicht gewonnen hat. Ein Blick in die Liste lohnt sich deshalb allemal. Wenn es eure Lieblinge sind, die diesmal zum Zuge kamen, Gratulation! Sind sie es nicht, Kopf hoch, im nächsten Jahr wird neu
