1 post in this topic

Here’s a pleasant surprise: the Spanish translation of our <a href=“http://www.amazon.com/World-Ice-Fire-History-Westeros/dp/0553805444/?tag=westeros-20”><em>The World of Ice and Fire</em></a>, <em>El mundo de Hielo y Fuego</em> (published by one of the very best SF/F publishers in Spain, <a href=“http://www.gigamesh.com/”>Gigamesh</a>), has been nominated for the <a href=“https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Premio_Ignotus”>Ignotus Award</a>!  The full list of the nominees can be found <a href=“http://www.aefcft.com/nominaciones-a-los-premios-ignotus-2016/”>here</a>; amazing to see our names on a list that includes the great John Clute.

The premiere Spanish SF/F award, the Ignotus winners are announced at the annual Hispacon Spanish national convention… which, this year, also happens to be <a href=“http://www.eurocon2016.org/es/bcon-hispacon-3/”>this year’s Eurocon</a>.
As it happens, Linda and I are likely to go, because we adored our visit to Barcelona last year, but knowing we’ll be in attendance as nominees is kind of remarkable.

Many thanks to everyone involved in making this book happen, both in the U.S. and in Spain (especially the team of translators with the thankless task of getting such a massive tome translated, and the inestimable Corominas for his striking covers!)

(Thanks to Spanish fan blog <a href=“http://caballerodelarbolsonriente.blogspot.se/”>el Caballero de la Arbol Sonriente</a> for the tip about the nominations!)
