2012 Bram Stoker Awards Recap

The nail-biting and hair-pulling is finally over now that this year’s Bram Stoker Award winners have been announced. The awards banquette, which streamed live from the illustrious Radisson Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah, was hosted by veteran emcee and horror funnyman Jeff Strand. As usual, Strand had plenty of zingers to keep the crowd busting a gut. There were a few disappointments, but I consider all the nominees winners just to be included with that caliber of writing talent. As for the Dreadful Tales pool, looks like I won by a hair with my guesses picks! What did I win? A brand new car? A gift card to Applebee’s? Alas, no prize except an inflated sense of pride and bragging rights. The final count ended with Pat 2-11, Jason also 2-11, and I managed 4-11, somehow.

There were many fans and authors alike out in the Twitterverse for the virtual viewing of the awards banquette and everyone at Dreadful Tales had a wonderful time chatting! Some of us enjoyed chatting (or heckling) more than others because both Jason and Colum ended up in Twitter jail! For those that don’t know, it’s when you get locked out of your account for tweeting 100 tweets/hour or 1000/day. That’s a lot of Tweets! It was a pretty tough crowd out there last night. Here are a few choice Tweets that had me cracking up.

@GradeZHorror I’ve seen third generation VHS bootlegs with better video quality #dt #whc2012

@GradeZHorror Wait! Don paid for this webcast? I would demand a refund. #dt #whc2012

@paperbackhorror YOWZA! @Gabrielle_Faust looks great tonight! #whc2012 #dt

@JasonDarrick Dammit! I missed her!

@paperbackhorror Damn. I have to pee but I’m robots to my seat waiting to see if Locke and Key is going to win ALL OF THE AWARDS…#whc2012 #dt

@JasonDarrick For those keeping score, @meliYOROSHIKU takes a 3-2-1 lead in the #DT #whc2012 pool.

Below are the final results and a few other awards that were presented Saturday night. If you missed the festivities, don’t fret, the whole thing will be available on Youtube in a week or so. Keep your eyeballs peeled on the HWA website. Looking for something new to read? This is a great list to draw from. Hell, I’d even suggest going back to past nomination lists to add to your to-read list. All of the books nominated are stellar and represent excellence in the horror genre to the fullest. Onto the winners!

Dreadful Tales Giveaway: The Sorrows by Jonathan Janz

It’s a Friday Giveaway at Dreadful Tales and we’re gifting two ebook copies of Jonathan Janz The Sorrows! You can read my full review here. The quick version is you got an engaging story with plenty of sex, violence, a bit of music and a lot of mayhem! I am very anxious for people to read Janz’ first novel, so I decided to host this giveaway and hopefully get fans as excited about his work as I am. All you gotta do is leave a comment telling me one of the following:

(1)   Your favorite Richard Laymon novel and why

(2)   Your favorite ghost / haunted house story and why

(3)   What horror fiction release you most look forward to in twenty-twelve

Hell, you can even deviate from those three topics as long as it’s horror related! That simple. Leave a comment, enter for a chance to get a digital copy of Jonathan Janz The Sorrows.

I’ll choose the two lucky readers on Sunday evening so you have all weekend to enter. Tell your friends and tell them to tell their friends, tell your mom and dad even! But I hope they’re not easily offended because Janz is unabashedly gruesome to his poor characters which is just the way we like our fiction at Dreadful Tales.

Good luck!

You Spoke To Us, So We Gave You Stuff!!

Ladies and gentlemen, the time is finally upon us! We’ve chosen 8 folks to give these awesome All Hallow’s Read gifts to, and in the interest of fairness and full disclosure, we drew the names on video so you could see the process (and so you could watch Colum silently freak out inside…)

If you recall, we were giving away 2 ebook copies (each) of Bryan Smith’s new urban fantasty/horror novel, Kayla and The Devil; Ronald Malfi’s absolutely chilling novella from Samhain Publishing, Borealis; and Melissa Ecker’s phenomenally scary and out-right sexy, Giving up the Ghost.

We also had 2 signed sets of Mary SanGiovanni’s For Emmy, Bob Ford’s Samson and Denial, and Kelli Owen’s The Neighborhood to give away. A very big Thank You has to go out to Pat Dreadful for trekking down to Horrorfind ’11 and getting these rad little books signed.

And finally, we were giving away volume’s 1 to 4 of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriquez’ badass comic, Locke and Key, in Trade Hardcover  - a killer gift for virtually anyone, and something to consider a prize in your collection.

In the end, a whole slew of you guys entered for a chance to get your hands on these pieces (in fact, there were about 60 more entries than we expected), and we wanted to announce the recipients in a special way.

So here we go, folks. Here’s not only Dreadful Tales’ very first video (implying that there will be more), but also an introduction to your friends in the DT Staff, as well as the names of the recipients of our giveaway.

Enjoy!

DT Staff
