In 1987, Locus also proclaimed The Last Unicorn as the #5 All-Time Fantasy Novel, ahead of T.H. White's classic "The Once and Future King", but ultimately edged out by a pair of Tolkeins, a Le Guin, and a novel by Gene Wolfe. Beagle himself was rated as the #4 All-Time Fantasy Novelist, with Tolkein again taking top honors, followed by Le Guin and McCaffrey; and also as the # 18 All-Time Novelist (combined Fantasty and Sci Fi), with Tolkein AGAIN sweeping the category.

Several of Beagle's short stories won awards and honors when they were originally published. Telephone Call won Seventeen Magazine's annual fiction contest, for example. I'll put the list of honors up at a later date.
