Yes we can...

Goldstar by T Windling

I've just learned that the Endicott Studio's Journal of Mythic Arts has won The World Fantasy Award -- which is a very lovely way to end its eleven-year run. (For those who don't know, the Summer 2008 issue was our last.)  We won in the "Nonprofessional" category -- I'm not sure why -- perhaps because the Endicott Studio is a nonprofit organization. (All profits made by JoMA and other Endicott projects go to charities for abused, homeless, and at-risk children.) Well heck, however they categorize us, Midori and I are delighted. We're very grateful to the WFA judges, to all the good folks who have worked on and contributed to JoMA, and to the fantasy community for supporting Endicott and mythic arts.

The Coyote Road: Trickster Tales (part of the "mythic fiction" series I edit with Ellen Datlow) didn't win in the Best Anthology category, but I'm pleased to report that the award went to an excellent book: Ellen's horror fiction anthology Inferno. Hooray, Ellen!

A full list of winners and nominees can be found here. Congratulations to everyone.

Well done!

Well, congratulations! I think that is a fine and fitting tribute to all your hard work. And an excellent acknowledgment to the Mythic Arts community over all.

It was JoMA that introduced me to some of the community of artists that I am honored and humbled to associate with these days. I felt like I had discovered a secret garden with a party going on, and I wanted to climb over the wall and hide in a tree, eat the fruits I found hanging there, take home a bouquet of flowers. Thank you for that. It has been an inspiration. In the roots of the word. You have breathed life into me.

Congratulations! You most certainly deserve it.

Congratulations! A nice way to go out. :)

Yay!

Congratulations Terri & Midori! This is a wonderful tribute to Endicott, and well deserved. Thank you again for all the days and years of inspiration.

Hooray!

Catching up on my EndicottStudio/TerriWindling/MidoriSnyder reading after too long away due to travels abroad... so forgive me for taking so long to say: congratulations, this is very well deserved.
