Mythopoeic Awards: 2011 Finalists Announced

Well, it's that time of year again: Mythopoeic Awards: 2011 Finalists Announced. This list pretty much always has some fairy tale related materials and other stuff just as wonderful, of course, so I will post the entire list. Only the fairy tale related stuff will get covers though as a compromise. Because there is so much on this list that I love which means what I haven't read I will probably at least like very much. Congrats to everyone, especially to Heather Tomlinson who I think stops by here periodically...

  1. Hi, Heidi-- thanks for the shout-out! I've really been enjoying the Bluebeard posts. The one about AT 955 especially sparked some ideas, but the response I wrote originally vanished into the ether... hope this one will go through OK!
