most of you any introduction is pointless: Locus magazine is
the most important information source about the science fiction world
for almost fifty years. For those of you who never heard of Locus,
a few words are in order:
published in 1968, Locus means more than news: it means interviews
with famous or up-and-coming writers, reviews, event coverage, and so
on and so forth. It is not surprising thus that Locus won
countless prizes for best science fiction magazine.
wonder what the news is.
news is that Locus published the results of the poll to
determine: the best science fiction and fantasy novel, novelette and
short story. Some of the books you will later on meet in my reviews,
and some not (they are already translated and published in Romanian).
this is the result list for novels:
S.F. novel of the XX century
Fantasy novel of the XX century
S.F. novel of the XXI century
Fantasy novel of the XXI century
