The finalists for the this year’s Mythopoeic Awards have been announced. The fiction categories include two friends of Lambda. Lambda Award winner Palimpsest (Cat Valente) is a finalist for adult, and Lammy finalist Ash (Malinda Lo) is a finalist for Young Adult.

According to their website:

“The Mythopoeic Awards are chosen from books nominated by individual members of the Mythopoeic Society, and selected by a committee of Society members.”

The Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature is given to the fantasy novel, multi-volume novel, or single-author story collection for adults published during the previous year that best exemplifies “the spirit of the Inklings”.

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.
