This Is Horror Awards 2011

Spectral has had a spectacular first year and you out there can add to the rise of the imprint by voting for it in the inaugural This Is Horror Awards (This Is Horror was formerly known as Read Horror and See Horror – the two merged recently). Spectral Press has been nominated in two categories: Best Chapbook of the Year (for What They Hear in the Dark by Gary McMahon and Nowhere Hall by Cate Gardner) and also in Best Publisher. The poll, and instructions on how to vote, can be found here:

And, while you’re there, why not vote for some of the other worthy stuff that’s been nominated – if you’ve read something this year that’s really floated your boat and it’s listed here, then let people know by adding your weight behind it by voting. Like people say, your favourite book/anthology/magazine can only win by getting the votes – and that extra vote might make the difference!

Voting ends tonight at midnight – SO GET VOTING AND SPREAD THE WORD!!

(Full disclosure: I write a column and articles for This is Horror and therefore I am NOT voting in this poll)

While you’re there, please also have a look at the exciting short story writing competition that Spectral is running in conjunction with the magazine – you can win some truly spectacular prizes, including a lifetime subscription to everything that Spectral publishes and also publication with your winning story in a future chapbook. To coin a phrase, you gotta be in it to win it!! Details here.

I would all like you to warmly welcome the latest addition to the chapbook line-up: Lisa L. Hannett. I’ll be publishing her beautifully bleak and spookily haunting story Smoke Billows, Soot Falls in 2014 (provisional), alongside fellow Australian wordsmith Angela Slatter. I can promise you, it’s a belter of a tale!
