Winners of the 2006 World Fantasy Award
  • Novel: Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
  • Novella: "Voluntary Committal" by Joe Hill
  • Short Fiction: "CommComm" by George Saunders
  • Anthology: The Fair Folk edited by Marvin Kaye
  • Collection: The Keyhole Opera by Bruce Holland Rogers
  • Artist: James Jean
  • Special Award: Professional: Sean Wallace (for Prime Books)
  • Special Award: Non-Professional: David Howe and Stephen Walker (for Telos Books)
  • Lifetime Achievement: Stephen Fabian
  • Lifetime Achievement: John Crowley

I haven't read many of these nominees, but I did read and review Kafka on the Shore. It is certainly worthy of the award.

I'm surprised that Kelly Link didn't win in the collection category, but I haven't read any of the nominees to justify that suprise.

It would have been nice to see Lou Anders at Pyr get the win, but then I don't know enough to say he's any more deserving than Sean Wallace.
