This year - for me - is almost surreal in quality.  I have fourbooks due, stories being published, things being considered for furtherpublications - and I find myself nominated for the Bram Stoker Award inthree categories.  It’s a little hard to take in.

This award has been maligned often and loudly, and of course, whenthe nominations came through, I found myself mulling over the reasons. The organization behind the awards, HWA (The Horroror Writer’sAssociation) has had it’s ups and downs - as any organization will. The award process is different from most of the other genre awards, inthat it is recommended by all members and voted on by only “Active”members.  It can become quite the popularity contest - but in the end,when the final ballots are cast, somehow it seems to level off.
