To my amazement and pleasure, Morbid Curiosity Cures the Blues made the preliminary ballot for the Bram Stoker Award in Nonfiction. The next round of voting will determine whether it makes the actual ballot of nominees, then it goes to a vote for the award.
I'm startled to get to this point. I've been assuming the book wasn't eligible for the award because all its essays are reprints. (Last year, the fiction anthology I was part of was disqualified for not having enough material published for the first time in 2008.) Perhaps the rules have changed.
Anyway, if you are a voting member of the HWA and you'd like to consider the Morbid Curiosity book for the award, please let me know. I have some copies I can give away.
Watching the youtube videos will give you a sense of the book, too. You can find them by searching Morbid Curiosity or MorbidLoren.
