The August Derleth Award was established in 1972 by the British Fantasy Society and is given to the best horror novel of the year as voted for by it's members and presented during the annual FantasyCon event. Before 2012, The August Derleth Award was given to the best fantasy novel, but since 2012 The Robert Holdstock has become the award for best fantasy.
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.
