The 2009 Hugo Award winners were announced this evening. For a change, I’ve read most of the winners, and they are all quite deserving. When the finalists were announced, I commented that Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book is the one most likely to still have a steady reading audience a 100 years from now. It’s that sort of book. I especially enjoyed Gaiman’s own reading of it in the audiobook version.
Gord Sellar was up for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer this year, but didn’t win…however, I think he gets another shot at it next year, so I will go back to rooting for him at that time.
