In our January 2015 issue Locus announced the 2015 World Fantasy Award judges, but mistakenly listed the names and addresses for the 2012
award judges, and provided details on the 2012 convention. We regret the error. Our previous post on the site was accurate.

The correct information is as follows:

The judges for the 2015 World Fantasy Awards have been empaneled. All forms of fantasy qualify; only living authors and editors are
eligible; all books must have a 2014 publication date and all magazines a 2014 cover date.

To be considered for awards, all materials must be received by all five judges and the convention by June 1, 2015:

at the Saratoga City Center and Saratoga Hilton, Saratoga Springs, NY. (Life Achievement nominees will not be released; the winner will be announced in advance of the banquet.)
