So Shadow Show scored the Bram Stoker Award for “Superior Achievement in an Anthology.” My collaborator Mort Castle and I could not be happier. We had an amazing time in New Orleans at the ceremony. Thanks to the Horror Writers Association for this tremendous honor. Wow! Here’s a picture of my beautiful (and heavy!) trophy.


  1. Many congratulations!

    Bet Ray is beaming down on you for this success! It’s pleasing that he knew about the book, and more than likely knew it was going to be very good.

    I love the bag-of-mixed-candy nature of anthologies, and I have scores of them. Let’s hope it’s not the last one you edit (with or without a trusty associate).

  3. Sam!
    It looks fantastic!
    It’d make a great bookend, so here’s to seconds!
    In the mean time, a felt-covered brick works well.
    A proud, and congratulatory, handshake-in-thought to you and Mort Castle.
