Congrats to all of the winners! I’ve blogged the full list, with a few thoughts, at Omnivoracious. The Mieville is a worthy winner, although I thought Kiernan’s novel should’ve won. I didn’t hold out any hope for Finch although I’ll put it up against anything out there.
Nothing really controversial in the winners’ list, except in the short story collection category. I’ve read the Petrushevskaya collection and I thought it stank up the joint. I’m particularly happy to see Strange Horizons win.
P.S. Let’s all do a really really good job of passing along the next year’s judges list so that we can make this a truly “world” World Fantasy Award. There should be more than enough stuff in translation, etc., to make a dent. All that’s needed is for publishers, editors, etc., to make sure the judges get the material.
