2006 Mythopoeic Award Nominees

Location: Mythcon XXXVII in Norman, Oklahoma.

Comments: In 2006 the date and location of the Mythopoeic Awards finally became permanently publicly available. As I have noted before, I suspect that  the Mythopoeic Awards were handed out at the annual Mythcon run by the Mythopoeic Society in previous years, but as I cannot find any confirmation of this, I am hesitant to list the annual ballot of nominees with this information. However, in 2006 and later years, this fact has been made explicit, and as a result, I can include the data.
