Announcing the 2015 Bram Stoker Award Winners

Announcing the 2015 Bram Stoker Award Winners

A-Head-Full-of-Ghosts-smallerBack in February, Goth Chick announced “Your Dark and Stormy Night Reading List” — the nominees for the The Horror Writers Association’s 2015 Stoker Awards for superior literary achievement in horror, in a variety of categories. The Bram Stoker Awards were instituted in 1987 and the eleven award categories are: Novel, First Novel, Short Fiction, Long Fiction, Young Adult, Fiction Collection, Poetry Collection, Anthology, Screenplay, Graphic Novel, and Non-Fiction.

That’s a lot of great horror reading. Now, the Bram Stoker awards are traditionally given out at the World Horror Convention, but this year changed things up a little. The 2015 honors were awarded on May 14, 2016 at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, during the first annual StokerCon — which sounds like it was a blast.

Congratulations to all the winners! And for all you readers, we suggest you start loading up your Amazon wish list immediately.
