Solid, unsurprising choice. I enjoyed reading this back in January, although it wasn't Stephenson's strongest work, in my opinion.
Fantasy Novel: Lavinia, Ursula K. Le Guin (Harcourt)
One of my favorite 2008 reads and a novel that I gave up trying to write a review of, due to how many layers of connection and interpretation there are between this and Vergil's epic poem.
First Novel: Singularity's Ring, Paul Melko (Tor)
Have this book, but for some reason, never got around to reading it.
Enjoyed it when I read it earlier this year, but it wasn't as good as several other YA novels from 2008 that I've read so far.
Novella: "Pretty Monsters", Kelly Link (Pretty Monsters)
Fitting win. Enjoy almost all of Link's writings.
Novelette: "Pump Six", Paolo Bacigalupi (Pump Six and Other Stories)
Not surprised it won, as it was a strong story.
Short Story: "Exhalation", Ted Chiang (Eclipse Two)
See above. It's Chiang. Anyone surprised?
Anthology: The Year's Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Fifth Annual Collection, Gardner Dozois, ed. (St. Martin's)
Collection: Pump Six and Other Stories, Paolo Bacigalupi (Night Shade Books)
Good, strong collection. Trying to think of any that would be a strong alternate, but failing at the moment.
Non-Fiction/Art Book: P. Craig Russell, Coraline: The Graphic Novel, Neil Gaiman, adapted and illustrated by P. Craig Russell (HarperCollins)
Haven't read yet.
Editor: Ellen Datlow
Artist: Michael Whelan
Good, when I read print mags, that is...
And in the David Langford territory for wins...
