2012 Bram Stoker Award Preliminary Ballot

I’m so excited about the 2012 Bram Stoker Awards! The Bram Stoker Award is a recognition for “superior achievement” in horror writing and is presented annually by the Horror Writers Association. I’ve actually read a few of these titles and can vouch for their awesomeness, but you’ll certainly want to pick them up and see for yourself (also worth noting is that many of these are a STEAL in ebook format, so be sure to check them out.)

Now, keep in mind, this is the preliminary ballot, which means that voting members will receive ballots with these names on them in February for final voting. I also just included fiction, so if you’d like to take a look at who’s on the list for screenplays,non-fiction, poetry, etc, head over to the Stokers website.

Who are you rooting for to appear on the final ballot?


NOVEL


FIRST NOVEL


YA NOVEL


LONG FICTION


SHORT FICTION


ANTHOLOGY


FICTION COLLECTION


GRAPHIC NOVEL (these selections will go directly to the final ballot)

  1. Frankly, I’m surprised Breed by Chase Novak is not on this list. I am pleased to see The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle though. It was an awesome book!

    Thanks for sharing!
