Mythopoeic Fantasy Award Winners

The Mythopoeic Fantasy Awards for Adult and Children’s Literature are presented annually by the Mythopoeic Society.

Erin Sunshine shouldn't be on this list, it doesn't have a mythology base. A lot of other Robin McKinley books would work though.


message 2: by Rora (new)

Rora Sunshine has to be on the list, since it was the winner for 2004.

andrea "The Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature is given to the fantasy novel, multi-volume novel, or single-author story collection for adults published during the previous year that best exemplifies “the spirit of the Inklings”."

message 4: by Eleanor (new)

Eleanor "My Boyfriend Merlin" is NOT a Mythopoeic Fantasy Award winner and shouldn't be on this list.... The full list of award winners can be found on the Mythopoeic Society web site, here: http://www.mythsoc.org/awards/winners/


message 5: by Lynn (new)

Lynn I'm confused by this list-- is it supposed to be the winners of the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award? Or is it meant to be books people *wish* had won the award or personally think would have been suitable? IF it's actually meant to be the list of winners then I suspect the kind of list should be changed from "anyone can add books".


message 6: by Eleanor (new)

Eleanor Yes, this is a list of MFA winners. I've cleaned it up and will add this year's winners after they are announced in August. There is also a listing of MFA winners (finalist nominees are also being added) here:
http://www.goodreads.com/award/show/1...

You can also access the awards listings from the entry for any particular book that includes the award on its information page.


message 7: by Lynn (new)

Lynn thanks!


Emma Deplores Goodreads Censorship Deleted Tigana, which was a finalist but not a winner.


message 9: by Rosalyn (new)

Rosalyn Sunshine is a retelling of beauty and the beast, beauty and the beast being a fairy tale, making iot n this list


message 10: by Mitchell (new)

Mitchell So - Clearly this list is the winners of the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award. And the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature.

Is it also for the winners of the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award Children's Literature?


message 11: by Mitchell (new)

Mitchell http://www.mythsoc.org/awards/awards-... looks to be a pretty useful resource for this list.


message 12: by Mitchell (new)

Mitchell Removed A Dark Horn Blowing. Otherwise this list seems to be complete and accurate.
