郝景芳在其微博中回应这个消息:能入选雨果奖很惊喜也很惊讶,因为小说最初只发表在一个新创的电子杂志上。


Responding to the announcement, Hao updated her Weibo account, saying she was surprised by the nomination since the novel was first published in a newly founded online magazine.



小说概要


日渐拥挤的未来北京,昼夜之间三个世界交替折叠,轮流苏醒。人们被阶级与出身分隔其间,在同一个舞台上演出无穷循环的城市戏剧。老刀,年近五十,垃圾工,单身父亲。为了女儿的未来,开始了他一天之中穿越三个世界的冒险。

她同时对小说的翻译者—美国华裔科幻作家刘宇昆表示感谢,因为好的翻译让她的作品得到更广泛的认可(要知道,刘大师本身就是著名科幻小说作家,并且去年大获全胜的《三体》就是他翻译的,传送门:三体的雨果奖,翻译的胜利),最后表达了对《三体2》落选的惋惜。


The writer especially thanked the translator of the novel, whom she accredited for the increased popularity of her work.She also expressed regret for Liu Cixin's exclusion from this year's list and praised him for boosting the export of Chinese sci-fi works to foreign countries.



《三体》在2015年获得雨果最佳长篇奖,其作者刘慈欣是第一位获得雨果奖的亚洲作家。雨果奖创立于1953年,在世界科幻界,雨果奖和星云奖被公认为最具权威与影响力的两大奖项。
