For the full lists, here's the Mythopoeic Awards site.

And now I am trying to decide which of the books in the children's category I'd pick to be the winner (since I've read them all). I'm going to go with Ash, although I bet Shannon Hale wins! (and that would be fine with me too).

Viz the adult books--I read the first 50 or so pages of Cloud and Ashes, and it was not for me--very mannered and painstakingly Crafted, and I found it too confusing and stilted. And I haven't read any other the others.

(with this post I am pre-empting all the work I just put into my last post, a new releases list, so do please go visit that too so that I don't feel it was all a Waste. Thanks.)
