Filed under: Fórum Fantástico 2006
É com pesar que a organização divulga que o autor norte-americano Harry Turtledove cancelou a sua presença no FF2006, por falecimento de um familiar próximo. Por vontade do autor, transcrevem-se as suas palavras:
My deepest apologies, but this trip has become impossible. This past Monday, I lost my uncle. My father died when I was 11; my uncle raised me after that.
He never married. He has no children, and no other nieces or nephews. The funeral is next Monday. I will be spending the rest of the week, and I don’t know how much longer, dealing with his property and settling his estate.
I wish I were not doing this. I wish someone else could do it for me. Unfortunately, life – and death – give us what they give us, not what we wish for. As things are, I need to stay where I am for the time being.
With sincere regrets,
O lançamento do livro O Dilema de Shakespeare, da Ed. Saída de Emergência, será mantido, desta feita conduzido pelo seu tradutor Jorge Candeias.
