In the third of a century that has followed, the award has never so much as nominated the following fantasy authors: Granted, Robin Hobb—when she was still writing as Megan Lindholm—got one nomination for a Hugo and three nominations for a Nebula. (Three of the four coming almost twenty years ago.) Granted also that Jim Butcher’s career is still comparatively new. But all wizards learn how to make such items as part of their training.

Each end is ruled by a multiplanar empire, one representing Magic and one representing Science, which are both trying to take over the entire multiverse. As the growth of the small press provides even more opportunities for those whose imagined worlds might not suit corporate sensibilities, such boundaries become ever more fluid. At the bottom of the descent, and as it seemed, by the side of a brook, (for Waverley heard the rushing of a considerable body of water, although its stream was invisible in the darkness,) the party again stopped before a small and rudely constructed hovel.
