RE: [mythsoc] Mythcon 38 reports?
- The Mythopoeic Award winners this year are
Patricia A. McKillip, Solstice Wood (Ace Books) Adult Fantasy
Catherine Fisher, Corbenic (Greenwillow) Children's Fantasy
Christina Scull and Wayne G. Hammond, The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide (Houghton Mifflin, 2006) Scholarship in Inklings
G. Ronald Murphy, S.J., Gemstone of Paradise: The Holy Grail in Wolframs Parzival (Oxford University Press, 2006) Scholarship in Myth and Fantasy
Ron Murphy was in attendance and gave us a wonderful presentation on Wolfram's critique of the Crusades in Parzival, complete with a miniature altar such as the ones used by the priests in the Holy Land. The other recipients sent their thanks to the committee and to the Mythopoeic Society for sponsoring myth and fantasy literature and scholarship.
I'll let some of the others go into detail on the weekend, but we had several wonderful talks and readings with our two Guests of Honor, Ellen Kushner and Delia Sherman. It was a very successful Mythcon, and kudos to the whole Berkeley team and to the presenters/artists for a job well done.

OK, those of you who attended Mythcon 38, how about some con reports for those of us who missed it? Don't be shy -- go into detail.
And who won the Mythopoeic Awards this year?
A better way to Internet
