Gaiman Wins Audie

The results of this year’s Audies are not online yet, but Neil Gaiman has been tweeting live from the ceremony and has reported that he has won the Best AudioBook of the Year category for his reading of The Graveyard Book. Further details when we get them.

Update: Still nothing on the official Audie web site, but Neil has blogged about winning for the Age 8-12 and Audiobook of the Year categories. Also the Arizona Daily Star notes that Stephen King’s The Duma Key tied for the win in the main Fiction category. The California Chronicle has a very badly formatted list of the winners from which we glean that the winner in the SF category was Robert Sawyer’s Calculating God.

    Congrats to Neil on winning Audiobook of the Year.

    My own CALCULATING GOD (from Audible Frontiers, narrated by Jonathan Davis) won the Audie Award for Best Science Fiction or Fantasy audiobook of the year.

    The full list of winners — including Stephen King in a tie for best fiction and Kurt Vonnegut for best short-story collection — is here at
