HWA Bram Stoker Award™ 2012 Reading List

Wow. Just… Wow.

T. E. Grau’s “The Screamer” from Urban Cthulhu: Nightmare Cities (hplmythos.com Vol. 2) is mentioned on the Bram Stoker Award Recommendations 2012 list. No, we are not talking about nominations here, but just to have a tale from my wee small press mentioned in such superb company… Wow…

Thanks to whoever recommended the story in the HWA. And, once again, thanks to the great writers who made this anthology come alive.

Here’s the text in full. You’ll find Grau’s story (which is amazing, that is true) below Stephen King in Long Fiction;-)

HWA Bram Stoker Award™ 2012 Reading List

This list of Bram Stoker Award Recommendations is compiled during the year by members of the Horror Writers Association. We make it available to the public as something of a ‘reading list’ for horror readers and fans. These works are all new horror published during the year that our members feel worthy of recommending for Bram Stoker Award consideration. They are not ‘Bram Stoker Award nominees’, nor are they part of any ballot process at this stage, but it is likely they represent some of the best new horror fiction., poetry and non-fiction published during the year.For full detail about the Bram Stoker Awards, please visit: http://www.horror.org/stokers.htm. Early in each year the Horror Writers Association announces its Preliminary Bram Stoker Awards Ballot, made up of both members’ recommendations and jury selections. A month or so later, we announce the Bram Stoker Awards Final Ballot, which lists the official nominees for the awards. Full detail of the members’ recommendation and jury selection processses and the ballots are included in the Bram Stoker Awards Rules.
