Horror Month is only half a year away! Time to get started on the creepy reads so that I can share them with you come October!
A great place to start is with this year’s Stoker Award nominees. The Bram Stoker Award is given by the Horror Writers Association, and celebrates excellence across eleven different categories of horror writing.
You can find the list of nominees here: http://www.thebramstokerawards.com/front-page/announcing-the-2018-bram-stoker-awards-final-ballot/
Heredity (Hereditary. I was so terrified I typed it wrong) which I have been too scared by the trailer to see, is up for Superior Achievement in a Screenplay. Two picks from this past Halloween, Unbury Carol and The Cabin at the End of the World are both nominated, as is Zoje Stage’s Baby Teeth, which I loved but was so the wrong thing to read as a new mom.
I’m looking forward to picking up The Rust Maidens by Gwendolyn Kiste and The Moore House by Tony Tremblay.
If you’re going to be in Grand Rapids, Michigan this May, you can attend StokerCon and see the awards in person. Josh Malerman and Jonathan Maberry will be there! http://stokercon2019.org/
