Comments: In 1976 the Best Adult Fantasy Literature Award category vanished from the slate of Mythopoeic Awards. I'm not sure why the category disappeared this year, but it was merely a harbinger of things to come as the Mythopoeic Awards would vanish entirely for the next several years. Despite my best efforts to figure out why the Mythopoeic Society took these steps and eliminated first their fantasy literature award, and then their scholarship award as well, I have found nothing that provides clarity on these issues.
