2008 Stoker Nominations for Horror

The Horror Writers Association has announced the (Bram) Stoker Award nominees for 2008. The nominees for superior achievement in a novel includes some new guy, Stephen King. He should've been in the First Novel category. They novelists include:

  • COFFIN COUNTY by Gary Braunbeck (Leisure Books)
  • THE REACH by Nate Kenyon (Leisure Books)
  • DUMA KEY by Stephen King (Scribner)
  • JOHNNY GRUESOME by Gregory Lamberson (Bad Moon Books/Medallion Press)

Skipping to short fiction (sorry):

  • "The Lost" by Sarah Langan (Cemetery Dance Publications)
  • "The Dude Who Collected Lovecraft" by Nick Mamatas and Tim Pratt (Chizine)
  • "Evidence of Love in a Case of Abandonment" by M. Rickert (The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction)
  • "Turtle" by Lee Thomas (Doorways)

The other categories include superior achievement in a first novel, in long fiction, in an anthology, in a collection (that new guy, Stephen King, is in this category too; I predict a bright future for the young fellow), in nonfiction, and in poetry.
