Nu mai are rost să vă sugerez, să vă zic direct, să vă mân de la spate, să fac pe interesantul, să fac pe deșteptul, deoarece v-am și sunt, cel puțin pe subiectul acesta. Așadar, uite lista; după, dacă aveți răbdare, ceva argumente, dacă nu, „antena vă aparține“ oricum, post-factum, cum m-ați și v-ați obișnuit:

Argumente:

A.singur fiind, nu pot gândi foarte diferit de mine însumi, nu-i așa?

B. În ceea ce privește schimbările:

1. cele de categorie sunt de la „centru“;

2. nominalizări propriu-zise:

a.Traducător: chiar trebuie să vă explic?

b. Best Author: Dănuț Ungureanu e No. One pe 2016, am scris despre asta.

c. Best Promoter: Sorin Repanovici. Are două acțiuni majore pe 2016 care, fiecare, a luat în considerare sf&f-ul românesc, inclusiv ca recunoaștere materială a valorii literare: Atlantykron și Festivalul Știință și Imaginație. Dacă aud mârâieli, aduceți-vă aminte că toți nominalizații români pentru Promoter din ultimii ani au avut două acțiuni reușite, în anul precedent (inclusiv Lenghel, e un fapt). Deci – Sorin Repanovici!

d. Encouragement Award: autoarea și cartea au toate caracteristicile celor pe care i-am încurajat în ultimii ani. Revedeți lista! So…

 

La anul sper să stăm de vorbă, avem tehnologia necesară și, by the way, voi elimina orice încercare „secu(r)istă“ de depășire pe dreapta, ARCA SF nu, repet, NU este recunoscută internațional (n-are cum să fie recunoscută de ESFS dacă ea nu recunoaște ESFS, marii juriști din staff-ul ARCA să le explice pamfletarilor de serviciu, eventual și pi-ar-iștilor de ocazie) așa că vorbirile pe subiect se fac în public, se cheamă dezbatere/listă de discuții, argument contra argument, urmat de vot, nu la ceas de seară, după rachiul de pere, ori voi fi nevoit să mă sacrific încă o dată. Puneți voi ghilimelele la orice vi se pare arogant.
