Mythopoeic Awards

This is the list of nominees and winners as found on the homepage of the Mythopeic Awards for Fantasy. It includes both adult and children’s titles. As you know, I like my fantasy for grown-ups as well as for children and many times, I prefer the nominees to the winner. Little experience that I have with this particular award, I’m curious to find out if I like the books which were awarded this prize. Most of them certainly sound more than intriguing.
