For those of you curious, here are the results of the Ditmar Awards, which were announced on the weekend.

Best Collected Work: Black Juice, Margo Lanagan

Best Novel: Crooked Letter, Sean Williams

Fan Artist: Sarah Xu

Fanzine: Bullsheet

Fan Writer:  Bruce Gillespie

Atheling: joint winners Rob Hood and Jason Nahrung

Best New Talent: Paul Haines


The  Peter MacNamara Achievement Award was won by Jonathan Strahan.

In case you don't remember, I was up for short fiction and the atheling, which means I didn't win, but that's cool. Not winning awards is the easiest of information to digest. Nothing simpler, and since I've done it more than a few times now, it's simpler still. Though it does appear that I am the only person who thinks the cover of The Black Crusade is absolutely hideous.

Go figure.
