Last year, Adrift on the Sea of Rains appeared as the title story in A la deriva en el mar de las Lluvias y otros relatos, an anthology of English-language science fiction translated into Spanish, edited by Mariano Villarreal (Adrift on the Sea of Rains was translated by Diego de los Santos). A couple of days ago, I learnt that not only was the anthology A la deriva en el mar de las Lluvias y otros relatos shortlisted for the Ignotus Awards, but so too were five of the stories in it – including Adrift on the Sea of Rains. Oh, and the cover art was also shortlisted. For the full Ignotus 2016 shortlists, see here. And congratulations to all the other nominees.
The Ignotus Awards are voted on each year by the members of the Asociación Española de Fantasía, Ciencia Ficción y Terror and the members of the Spanish national convention, Hispacon. This year they will be awarded at Bcon, also the Eurocon, in Barcelona on the weekend of 4 – 6 November.
