Neil Gaiman has won yet another award with his young adult novel The Graveyard Book. Last night The Graveyard Book was dubbed the Best Novel of 2009 by the Hugo Awards, awards for excellence in the field of science fiction and fantasy.  The Hugo Awards are awarded each year at the World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon), with voting for the awards open to all members of the World Science Fiction Society (WSFS).

This is the latest in a long list of recognition for The Graveyard Book — including winning the 2009 Newberry Medal, a Locust Award for best Young Adult Novel, and being nominated as an ALA Booklist Editor’s Choice and an ALA Best Book for Young Adults — making it one of the most heavily awarded children’s books in recent history.

Last January Gaiman announced that the film adaption of The Graveyard Book will be written and directed by Neil Jordan.
