The National Fantasy Fan Federation has announced the winners of the 2020 Speculative Fiction Awards known as the Neffys.
Founded in 1941, the N3F is one of the oldest science fiction and fantasy fan clubs still in operation. The group has a number of publications, both in digital and print, and administers the Neffys as well as the Franson Award and the Kaymar Award. The Neffys have been awarded annually since 2005.
