The HWA announced the preliminary Bram Stoker Award ballot yesterday, and my collection Sparks and Shadows
is on it :)
Gary A. Braunbeck also made the preliminary ballot for his novel Mr. Hands
and his novella "Afterward, There Will Be A Hallway" (which is in Five Strokes to Midnight
, which is also on the ballot in the anthology category).
Regarding the Stokers, I should note that being on the preliminary ballot is not
the same as being nominated for the award ... only works that make it onto the final ballot are nominees.
If you are a voting member of the HWA and you haven't had access to my book, let me know and I can fix that :) I have a few coverless review copies of Sparks and Shadows
, or I can email you a PDF. Whichever you prefer, please comment on my Livejournal
with your postal address or email address ... I will screen comments so your info isn't revealed.
I believe Gary can also provide PDFs of all his aforementioned works, so please likewise comment here if you'd like copies for consideration.
