I was hoping Jeffrey Ford would win, I hadn't expected him to get best novel as well. The Drowned Life was superb so I expected the best collection win. Shadow Year is good also but Gaiman is such a darling for these sort of awards I thought that would be the winner.

Nice to see Jeffrey Ford take two awards. I have become a big fan of his work over the past five years.
