TOP 10 famous people whoMaria Galina. AutohonesSo the time has come for the annual “distribution of elephants.” Last year, in contrast to, say, a couple of previous ones, certain innovations were outlined. Firstly, there were several very decent books by domestic authors, able to compete on equal terms with foreign counterparts. Secondly, our publishers quite actively acquainted the public with hitherto unknown works of foreign science fiction writers – those that had been waiting for a translation for a very long time. And thirdly, the most-most fantastic news are increasingly coming out of us almost “off the wheels”. This means that competition in the fantastic market will increase even more. Applicants: Terry Pratchett “Fint”, Max Barry “Lexicon”, Sergey Nosov “Curly braces”, Stanislav Lem “Black and White” 10That is the case, works that are quite difficult to attribute to any genre. And often these are very worthy books. And although they do not fit into the framework of pure “science fiction” or “fantasy”, do not ignore them at all? That is how the nomination “the most unusual book” appeared, which this time included the philological thriller of Max Barry, the stylization of Victorian adventure by Terry Pratchett, the collection of journalism and essays by Stanislav Lem and the magical realism of Sergei Nosov. And another magical realism won – Maria Galina’s novel “Autochtones”. Galina is not new to “science fiction”, her novels “Little Glusha” and “Medvedki” received several genre awards, they were also noted by our magazine. “Autochtones” is a very atmospheric, beautifully written, richly saturated with symbols and metaphors novel. The thing is wonderful, but quite elitist. Therefore, it only wins in a specific nomination.
