1982 Mythopoeic Award Nominees

Location: Unknown

Comments: In 1982, the Mythopoeic Awards went right back to their usual practice of recognizing that half of the human race is made up of women, resulting in more than half of the nominees on the ballot being works that were authored by women. By the early-1980s this wasn't so unusual, as many other genre awards had at last begun to include female nominees in their ballots. But what is unusual is that, while those awards were having to adjust to the influx of women-authored works in their nominee lists, for the Mythopoeic Awards, this was just business as usual.
