For HWA members (and anyone else who cares)

Greg Lamberson, excellent filmmaker, great author and all-around good guy, just e-mailed me to let me know that my werewolf novel Ulrik is in a multi-book tie for 10th place on the Horror Writers Association Bram Stoker Award recommendation list in the Novel category. It needs, probably, a minimum of four more recommendations to make the preliminary ballot. So, if you’re a member and have read it and liked it and want to recommend it, I’d appreciate it.

Greg may not be crowing about it, but I will. His one novel, Johnny Gruesome, is the top recommendation-getter in the same category. This is an awesome novel. If you love the horror of the ’80s, this is a must-read. Johnny makes Freddy look like a bad dream.

My soon-to-be-released novella Little Graveyard on the Prairie is also on the Stoker list in the Long Fiction category. As much as I love Ulrik, I think Little Graveyard would have a better shot at winning something. Unfortunately, it probably won’t be out in time to get many readers, and with its limited print run, even fewer will see it.

I really have mixed feelings about campaigning for award votes. Either you like it or you don’t. If you do, you’ll recommend it. But I know money is tight and we can’t afford all the books we want. So, if you are an HWA member and want to read a PDF of either of these books, drop me an e-mail at steve(at)stevenewedel(dot)com and I’ll send it to you.
