      Hi guys

      Here is your weekly admin post – this week focusing on stories about
      Tolkien's "Fair Folk": the Elves. If you're a fan of wily Fëanorians,
      like stories about the woodland realms of the Sindar or enjoy the
      less-written-about Vanyar or Avari, we have something for you. Whether
      you like reading about them crafting marvellous works, fighting bravely
      in battle or quarreling as only someone with a grudge hundreds of years
      old can, I hope this list helps you find stories you'd like to review.

      For the list of pieces in this announcement I've used an author's main
      category selection. Each author selects three category choices, only one
      of which it can be placed in; but the author has still described it as
      being suitable for three category choices, even if it isn't placed
      there. So if an author selected the "race" category Elves it will be on
      this list.

      Finding stories that selected a certain main category is pretty
      straightforward. To do this

      1. Log in to www.mefawards.net/MEFA2008/
      2. Click the "Stories" link at the top of the page.
      3. Click the "Show Filter" link.
      4. Click the "Clear All Filters" button if you've used the filter before
      this session.
      5. Select the genre, race, or time period you would like from the
      "Genre, Race, Time" filter (sixth from the bottom).
      6. Click the "Display selected nominations" button.

      This will pull up all of the nominated pieces that selected your main
      category as a first-, second-, or third-choice category, even if they
      didn't end up categorized in that main category.


      Here are the stories competing in this year's competition whose author
