Hugo Awards: The Results

Well, it's over and I'm late with this (sorry). The winners of each category are:
  • Best Novel: The Yiddish Policemen’s Union by Michael Chabon (HarperCollins; Fourth Estate)
  • Best Novella: “All Seated on the Ground” by Connie Willis (Asimov’s Dec. 2007; Subterranean Press)
  • Best Novelette: “The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate” by Ted Chiang (Subterranean Press; F&SF Sept. 2007)
  • Best Short Story: “Tideline” by Elizabeth Bear (Asimov’s June 2007)
  • Best Related Book: Brave New Words: The Oxford Dictionary of Science Fiction by Jeff Prucher (Oxford University Press)
  • Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form: Stardust Written by Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn, Based on the novel by Neil Gaiman Illustrated by Charles Vess Directed by Matthew Vaughn (Paramount Pictures)
  • Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form: Doctor Who “Blink” Written by Steven Moffat Directed by Hettie Macdonald (BBC)
  • Best Editor, Long Form: David G. Hartwell
  • Best Editor, Short Form: Gordon Van Gelder
  • Best Professional Artist: Stephan Martiniere
  • Best Semiprozine: Locus
  • Best Fanzine: File 770
  • Best Fan Writer: John Scalzi
  • Best Fan Artist: Brad Foster
I'll be honest, I expect Chabon's book to win, even though I haven't read it yet. I didn't say that, but I figured that considering how well it has done thus far and considering its content and general appeal, it had a darn good shot. Still, it was up against some good competition (such as Robert J. Sawyer's Rollback and books by three of the greatest writers currently out there--John Scalzi, Ian McDonald, and Charles Stross).

In any case, congratulations to the winners!

(Don't click the read more, there isn't any more after this!)
