Ignotus Awards 2010

Over at Sue Burke’s blog, she posted the results of the Ignotus Awards. In her own words:

“The Ignotus Award is Spain’s equivalent to the Hugo, awarded at the annual convention, called Hispacon, sponsored by the Asociación Española de Fantasía, Ciencia Ficción y Terror. The 2010 awards were presented October 11 during Hispacon XXVIII, held this year in Burjassot, Valencia.
