    I extend my warmest congratulations to Neil Gaiman for winning the Hugo Award for Best Novel. ‘The Graveyard Book’, a classic bildungsroman which echoes the works of many literary giants, is definitely worthy of this highest honor.

    Maybe I’m just old school and don’t “get it.” I’ve never heard of ANY of the winners (nor their authors, for that matter.)

  45. @Dave Jared
    Perhaps you were looking in the wrong aisle in the bookstore? Or reading authors from a different decade?

    Neil Gaiman first won a Hugo in 2002.
    Nancy Kress first won a Hugo in 1992.
    Elizabeth Bear first won a Hugo last year.
    Ted Chiang first won a Hugo in 2001.

    So it’s not like these writers haven’t been a part of the field for years.
