One thought on “Prêmio Argos de Literatura Fantástica 2015 Awarded

  1. Fun fact: Alexey Dodsworth Magnavita sued a TV network for being unfairly kicked off an Amazon-themed reality TV show, and won.

    Dezoito do Escorpião looks like a fascinating book – paranormal, indigenous culture, astronomy and horror. I wonder what the chances might be of seeing an English translation.
