The Spanish Association for Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Horror (Associación Española de Fantasía, Ciencia Ficción y Terror, AEFCFT) has announced the nominees for the 2014 Ignotus Awards, which are the national version of the Hugo Awards. The awards originated in 1991, and each year they honor the best works of Spanish speculative fiction and translations from other languages.
