This weekend the World Horror Convention is in Salt Lake City. I couldn’t make it this year, though here’s what I had to say about last year’s in Austin. The Bram Stoker Awards are being held in tandem, including special festivities celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Horror Writers Association. You can peruse the shortlist of nominees here. Tomorrow night the award ceremony will be livestreamed. Tune in at 9PM MST to watch.
Two lifetime achievement awards will be bestowed on Rick Hautala and Joe R. Lansdale, both of whom are fantastic picks. Sometimes the selection of the lifetime recipient leaves me scratching my head. (Christopher Lee? Really? For horror writing?) Both Joe and Rick, however, are well deserving of the accolade. Congrats to the two of them, as well as all the nominees. I’ll post the winners after they’re announced.
