On Mondays and Fridays, the Main Page includes a section where an introduction to one of Wikipedia's featured lists is displayed. The current month's queue can be found here. The lists appearing on the main page are scheduled by the featured list director Giants2008.
To appear on the main page, a list must already be featured. For more information on the featured list promotion process, please see Wikipedia:Featured list candidates, and the featured list criteria. In addition to being featured, a main page blurb must be drafted, which introduces the subject of the list. Main page blurbs are roughly 1,000 characters in total length, with no endlines, reference tags, alternate names, or extraneous bolding, although the link to the specified featured list should be bolded. You can submit a list at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/submissions.
At the moment, lists are scheduled by the FL director or the FL delegates, although we will eventually be devising a community-based system for selecting each day's list. We encourage editors to submit and review as many blurbs as possible. If you notice a problem with an upcoming main-page featured list, please leave a message talkpage here.
The World Fantasy Award for Best Novel is given each year by the World Fantasy Convention to one or two fantasynovels published in English or translated into English during the previous calendar year. A work of fiction is defined by the organization as a novel if it is 40,000 words or longer; other World Fantasy Awards are given out for pieces of shorter lengths in the Short Story and Novella categories. The World Fantasy Award for Best Novel has been awarded annually since 1975. Nominees and winners are decided by attendees and judges at the convention. During the 39 nomination years, 135 authors have had works nominated; 39 of them have won, including ties. Only four authors have won twice: Gene Wolfe(pictured), out of seven nominations; Tim Powers, out of five; Jeffrey Ford, out of three; and James K. Morrow for both of his nominations. Wolfe has the most nominations for an author who has won at least once, while Stephen King has the most nominations without winning, at nine, followed by Charles L. Grant at six and Jonathan Carroll at five. (Full list...)
