      The Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature is given to the
      fantasy novel, multi-volume, or single-author story collection for
      adults published during 2000 that best exemplifies "the spirit of the
      Inklings". Reissues (such as paperback editions) are eligible if no
      earlier edition was a finalist. Books from a series are eligible if
      they stand on their own; otherwise, the series is eligible the year
      its final volume appears. The Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Children's
      Literature honors books for younger readers (from "Young Adults" to
      picture books for beginning readers), in the tradition of The Hobbit
      or The Chronicles of Narnia. Rules for eligibility are otherwise the
      same as for the Adult Literature award. The question of which award a
      borderline book is best suited for will be decided by consensus of
      the committees.

      The Mythopoeic Scholarship Award in Inklings Studies is given to
      books on Tolkien, Lewis, and/or Williams that make significant
      contributions to Inklings scholarship. For this award, books first
      published during the last three years (1998-2000) are eligible,
      including finalists for previous years. The Mythopoeic Scholarship
      Award in Myth and Fantasy Studies is given to scholarly books on
      other specific authors in the Inklings
      tradition, or to more general works on the genres of myth and
      fantasy. The period of eligibility is three years, as for the
      Inklings Studies award.

      The winners of this year's awards were announced at the banquet
      during Mythcon XXXII, which was held in Berkeley, California, from
      August 3-6th, 2001. A complete list of Mythopoeic Award winners is
      available on the Society web site:
