Lanagan's young adult title Tender Morsels was this weekend named joint winner of the best novel prize with Jeffrey Ford's The Shadow Year, a sinister tale of small-town boyhood in the s.

Lanagan said she was "delighted" that Tender Morsels, described as "sordid wretchedness" in the Daily Mail but as "funny, tragic, wise, tender and beautifully written" in the Guardian, had won the award at the World Fantasy Convention in San Jose, California on Sunday. She hit out at the articles claiming young adults are unable to handle the themes of her book.
