Locus Award Winners for Best Fantasy Novel

After experimenting with the idea of a Best Fantasy Novel award in 1978 with an honor for J.R.R. Tolkien's Silmarillion, the Locus Awards decided to make this a permanent award in 1980, splitting the previously awarded Best Novel award into two categories. Beginning in 1980 and continuing to the present, the Locus award for Best Fantasy Novel has been awarded in parallel with the award for Best Science Fiction Novel.
