So, without further ado, here are the 2010 honorees:
- Novel: Audrey’s Door by Sarah Langan
- First Novel: Damnable by Hank Schwaeble
- Long Fiction: The Lucid Dreaming by Lisa Morton
- Short Fiction: “In the Porches of My Ears” by Norman Prentiss (Post-Scripts #18)
- Collection: A Taste of Tenderloin by Gene O’Neill
- Anthology: He is Legend edited by Christopher Conlon
- Non-Fiction: Writers Workshop of Horror edited by Michael Knost
- Poetry: Chimeric Machines by Lucy Snyder
Speaking of anthologies, Christopher Conlon's winner is a tribute to the great Richard Matheson, containing original stories by some great writers like Joe Hill and others. And that Writer's Workshop of Horror is a fine little volume for those looking to break into horror fiction, worth checking out for sure.
The Bram Stoker Awards are presented every year since 1987 by the Horror Writers Association of America. And no, my first short story was not nominated... Oh well, gives me something to strive for with the next one!

In other random developments, please be sure to check out my guest review of Dead Snow over at Day of the Woman! And I would be remiss if I did not give another plug for the Rondo Hatton Awards--voting ends Saturday night, so get those ballots in!
