Recommended Reading

One of the best parts of the Bram Stoker Awards is that members of the Horror Writers Association get to recommend literary works that they have enjoyed. Some of them end up on the preliminary ballot and then go on further to win an award.

I feel that being on this list is an achievement in itself and better yet, it’s a great way to see what books are out there to be read. So whether you’re a writer or a reader, you really should check this list out if you’re looking for the next best thing!

The Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement

Other lists worth checking out include the Australian Shadows Awards, the Ditmar Awards and the Aurealis Awards.

Now the only question that remains is how do I find the time and the money to read all these works? 🙂

  1. Bloody well done on making the recommended reads list for the Stokers, Greg! And yes, I agree, the money to book-wanting ratio never works in my favour either… 🙂

  2. Pft! Absolutely not! I am now in desperate need of another bookcase because my hubby doesn’t like the pile balanced precariously on my bedside table… and the dining table… and the little stool near my desk. He’s mad, I say, mad! 🙂
