LOCUS AWARD
FOR
BEST FANTASY NOVEL
1978-2002

This annual award is based on a poll conducted by the magazine Locus. "Consistently more votes are recorded in the Locus Poll than for any other award; in 1986 the votes totaled over 1,000 (more than the totals for the Hugo and Nebula awards combined.)  For this reason if for no other, the Locus Poll can be claimed to be most authoritative."  -- James Gunn in The New Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, 1988. The Awards for best fantasy novel are as follows.
