      The Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature is given to the
      fantasy novel, multi-volume, or single-author story collection for
      adults published during 2006 that best exemplifies “the spirit of the
      Inklings”. Books are eligible for two years after publication if not
      selected as a finalist during the first year of eligibility. Books from
      a series are eligible if they stand on their own; otherwise, the series
      becomes 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 (2004–2006) 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 Mythcon XXXVIII in
      Berkeley, California, on August 5, 2007. A complete list of Mythopoeic
      Award winners is available on the Society web site:
