2013 British Fantasy Awards Winners

I've read Mieville and Abercrombie's offerings. Railsea was unique memorable, Red Country was fun but more of the same. I hope I get a chance to sample the winning novel and the other nominees.

Announcing the 2013 British Fantasy Awards Winners | The 2013 British Fantasy Awards were presented today at the Brighton World Fantasy convention.
