To my amazement and pleasure, Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues made the preliminary ballot for the Bram Stoker Award in Nonfiction. The next round of voting will determine whether it makes the actual ballot of nominees, then it goes to a vote for the award. The award ceremony is at the World Horror Convention in Brighton, England in March. I'm startled to get to this point. I'd been assuming the book wasn't eligible for the award because all its essays are reprints. (Last year, the fiction anthology I was part of got disqualified for not having enough material published for the first time in 2008.) Perhaps the rules have changed. Anyway, I've posted the news to twitter, facebook, and my blogs. I'm offering to give some of my stash of books to voting members of the HWA. Hopefully, Morbid Curiosity will advance to the next round and we can call it an award-nominated collection of essays. Wish me luck!
