QFI 547

a)What specific achievement connects the four people seen in the picture? b)Also thegentlemen in the last two pictures share yet another unique record.What is it?

They are the only writers to win both the Hugo and Nebula awards for a book not once but twice ! .
1) Clarke for Rendezvous with Rama and The Fountains of Paradise .
2)Le Guin for Disposssed and Left Hand of Darkness
3)Haldeman for The Forever War and Forever Peace
4) Orson Scott Card for Ender’s Game and Speaker for the Dead

Card and Haldemann are the only sci- fi writers where both the original book and it’s sequel ( mentioned above) won both the Hugo and the Nebula . Sort of like Godfather 1 and 2 winning Best Picture at the Oscars and the Globes etc..
