This past weekend was the annual World Horror Convention, this year hosted in New Orleans. I jealously read the tweets from attendees. While it would have been amazing to go (especially to such a perfect city for it), my heart lead me to my third year at Gen Con.
As part of World Horror, they also host the Bram Stoker awards. Highlights for me: Caitlin R Kiernan won the best novel for The Drowning Girl and Jonathan Maberry won best YA novel for Flesh & Bone! Congrats to all the winners, see the rest at the Galley Cat blog.
