Ya se conocen las obras ganadoras de los Premios Locus 2020 entregadas por la revista del mismo nombre



Cada año desde 1971, la revista Locus entrega los premios literarios que llevan su nombre. Con el tiempo, el Locus se ha convertido en uno de los galardones de mayor prestigio para los escritores de fantasía y ciencia ficción y un referente entre los aficionados al género. Neil Gaiman, George R.R. Martin, Orson Scott Card o Ursula K. Le Guin son algunos de los autores que más veces han resultado premiados.

Lamentablemente, la crisis sanitaria ha obligado a que en esta edición los premios se entreguen en una ceremonia virtual que se celebrará el próximo sábado 27 de junio.

Las obras seleccionadas como vencedoras y finalistas en cada categoría son las siguientes:
