No great surprise to me, it's China Miéville who picked up the bookend last night. What a practical prize it is, so much better than an ugly statuette.
Sources close to the committee tell me that the final choice was a close one between this and another book. I wonder what the other contender was? It could have been any of them!
Ah well, that's that for another year. Now I can go back to randomly finding books at jumble sales and second hand shops.
