The controversy section was wildly bias. To assert that Lovecraft only showed racism in "some of his earlier works" is factually inaccurate. As is saying it was a "minor aspect of his personality." Further, to add quotations to the word controversy in the second paragraph here: "Lovecraft and Weird Fiction scholar S. T. Joshi has addressed this 'controversy' " seems to be an effort to discredit and marginalize the critique of him being the face of the award. Once more Wikipeadia is proving to be a vehicle for apologist of white supremacy and fraught with revisionist history.Pearl2525 (talk) 19:32, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
The rumour is untrue huh? They let the intro in the fourth Sandman book lie I suppose, I wonder how the editor missed that when it was the central point of the intro? Oh I get it, they didn't make comics uneligible, they just shoved them down into some sub-catagory to collect dust and general lack of interest. Is this the World Fantasy Written Word Awards? No it isn't.
And the problem is, THEY DID CHANGE THE RULES. This can be clearly seen on thier own site. They say "Comics are eligible in the Special Award Professional category. We never made a change in the rules.", and yet for all eyes to see... http://www.worldfantasy.org/awards/1991.html... Gee,
This article needs to cover the Special Awards generally and provide enough information to distinguish them from each other. Each list prefaces should cover its featured award in context of the entire WFA program --as well as local details such as the comics controversy.
