News, Reviews, and Social Media
by Lynn Maudlin
The pandemic of 2020 (and 2021, *sigh*) threw the Mythopoeic Awards into a state of upheaval: lockdowns, closed libraries, and limited access to nominated books made the reading process longer and more convoluted than ever before. Normally the winners would have been announced in-person at Mythcon 51 until Mythcon was postponed... still, our intrepid readers pressed on, and February 14 we announced the winners via a video presentation on our new MythSoc YouTube channel.
Do not miss these: Earlier in February our Steward for Social Media, Alicia Fox-Lenz, posted four interviews with some of the nominees, so if you haven't read these blogposts, please don't miss them!

Announcements ListWe encourage all members of the Mythopoeic Society to subscribe to our "news blog," the Horn of Rohan Redux, where this link will take you. There is no discussion or interaction, just updates and information posted from time to time. It is the fastest way for us to get the word out to Society members but you must sign up for it to work.
We have put an unformatted archive of the retired MythAnn ("Mythopoeic Announcements") group here, for historic purposes.
Social MediaMany Mythopoeic Society members are active on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, a MythSoc Discussion Group (now hosted at Groups.io), and the Society has a presence on various social media sites; we invite you to "like" us or "follow" us or, in the case of the Facebook MythSoc group, ask to join - but please remember, being a part of the general-interest group on Facebook doesn't make you a member of the Mythopoeic Society - you must join the Society in order to actually be a member of the Society!
The Mythopoeic Society now has a MythSoc YouTube channel.
You can also connect with many of your fellow mythies via Goodreads, for instance, the Mythcon 43 Reading Group, or see some Mythopoeic photos in the MythSoc group on Flickr.
You can also help the Society fund its activities, including the “Starving Scholars Fund”, formally renamed the Glen GoodKnight Memorial Scholarship Fund, when you shop at Amazon, by following a link from our website.
