Big Bunch of News, Part 5: “Roots and All” Up For The HWA Stoker Award

What’s the best thing you can hear after dragging in from an hour of circuit training and heavy bag work? My vote goes for this: “Hi honey, can I scrub you down and shower you off? Oh, and we won $10,000,000, too!”

I would totally live in here if I were short enough.

Sadly, that didn’t happen today either. But the runner-up was pretty sweet: a batch of congratulations on making the final ballot for the Horror Writers Association’s 2011 Bram Stoker Award.

Yep, my novelette “Roots and All,” from Stephen Jones’ epically awesome A Book Of Horrors, follows up its selection for Ellen Datlow’s The Best Horror of the Year, Volume Four, with a shot at Superior Achievement In Long Fiction.

It probably won’t go any further than this. Awards and I have a long and almost spotless record of repelling each other … which is excellent news for everyone else!

You can see the full list of finalists here.
