Mythopoeic Awards

I've gotten out of the habit of posting all of the minor SFF awards, since I haven't been seriously trying to be a portal/links site for close to two years now. But I like the word "Mythopoeic" -- even if I always want to shove a "t" in the middle and make it more "poetic" -- so I'll toss these winners out at you. They were announced this last weekend at Mythcon XL (not sure if that's "40" or "extra-large") in the city of Lost Angels:
  • Adult Literature: Flesh and Spirit and Breath and Bone, Carol Berg (Roc)
  • Children's Literature: Graceling, Kristin Cashore (Harcourt Children's)
  • Inklings Studies: The History of the Hobbit, Part One: Mr. Baggins; Part Two: Return to Bag-end, John Rateliff (Houghton Mifflin, 2007)
  • Myth and Fantasy Studies: Four British Fantasists: Place and Culture in the Children’s Fantasies of Penelope Lively, Alan Garner, Diana Wynne Jones, and Susan Cooper, Charles Butler (Children's Literature Association & Scarecrow Press, 2006).
