To my great surprise and joy, my collection, Children of the Fang and Other Genealogies, has been nominated for the This Is Horror awards in the collection category! Thanks very much to everyone who voted to put it there, amidst some imposing company. Frankly, I am gobsmacked. If you’d like to have a look at the complete nominations, you can do so here.
“I’m thrilled and humbled that the voters have selected The Fisherman as Novel of the Year. To have been nominated alongside the other novels in this category was already an honor, and the ballot as a whole is a reminder of the talent flourishing in the horror field. I’m grateful to everyone who sat down with my book and gave it a chance, and I’m thankful to everyone who cast a vote for it. The Fisherman owes its publication to Ross Lockhart, for which, many, many thanks. It owes its composition to my lovely wife, Fiona, for which all, all of my love.”
It’s a terrific slate of winners; congratulations to Victor LaValle, Livia Llewellyn, Mike Davis, Ross Lockhart, and everyone else!
