I'm kinda glad Chiang won his category. I don't mind a bit of Resnick, but "Article of Faith" was so awful I was worried it might win. Hugo voters usually get it somewhere close to right, but there have been some shockers. :)

I have to read more Ted Chiang - haven't got through his first collection of short stories yet.

Was it Mike Resnick who wrote Santiago? I picked that up after reading raves about it and found it disappointing.

Dunno - Resnick is a favourite on Escape Pod. To my mind his stories tend to be endearingly sentimental, except when they're mawkishly sentimental.

"Article..." is a clumsy Asimov-inspired thing about a robot that starts to work in a church and becomes a believer. It's heavy-handed and a bit yuk.

Oh yeah, I read a review of that story.

I've only read 'The Graveyard Book' but it deserves an award.
