2010 Turtledove Awards Winners

The 2010 Turtledove Awards were held in January and February of that year.

The most major new addition in the 2010 Turtledove Awards was the fact that all timeline and story entries could win two separate awards - “Best New” and “Best Continuing” - in the same thematic category.

Some of the wholly new categories introduced in this year of the Turtledoves included, e.g. “Best Series”.
