and the Horrorfind Literary Award Winner is……

Horrorfind has announced the first ever Literary Award winner and it is Brian Keene!  We, at the Dreadful Tales offices, can’t think of a more deserving recipient than Brian.  He continuously puts the good of the genre above his own personal interests and also happens to be one of the most approachable guys you will ever meet.  He does all of this while still managing to produce several novels per year and attend numerous conventions.  We raise a pint in your honor and cannot wait for the ceremony at this year’s Horrorfind Weekend of Horrors.

Here is the official word from Horrorfind:

We’re please to announce the first Horrorfind Literary Award: This award will be presented to Author Brian Keene in recognition of his contributions to the literary community. Award will be presented on Saturday following the last scheduled reading at 7pm.

About Pat Dreadful

Father of three. Impregnator of one. Pat lives in the backwoods of Pennsylvania where he splits his time between moonshining and moonlighting. He used to be the sole proprietor of a funky little site called Grade Z Horror but jumped at the chance to work with Meli and Colum. He was raised on King and Crichton but quickly found true salvation in the works of Ketchum and Laymon. When not selling plasma to afford those highly sought after Jeff Strand limited editions, Pat can be found sitting on his back porch with a pipe full of Perique and the sounds of summer coming through a beat up transistor radio. Simply put, he is a true ramblin’ boy of pleasure. The books that have shaped Pat’s warped lil’ ol’ mind have included Dweller by Jeff Strand, It by Stephen King, Boy’s Life by Robert McCammon, The Traveling Vampire Show by Richard Laymon and The Girl Next Door by Jack Ketchum. Pat is always on the lookout for a good coming-of-age yarn so shoot your suggestions to You can also follow his unsavory exploits over at
