The City and the City wins World Fantasy Award

Having already won a Hugo, the Arthur C. Clarke award, and the BFSA, China Miéville's The City and the City last night won a World Fantasy award for best novel. Rumours that Miéville, upon learning of his victory, swore loudly and muttered something about "another new mantlepiece" as of yet remain unconfirmed.

Congratulations to China - great guy, great writer.

Congrats to China! I've a copy of Kraken to read through soon, and I'm pretty excited about it. He's been getting all sorts of praise for his novels so I've got a feeling that it's gonna be a good read!
