Many of you already know I'm in charge of the goody bags for this year's Bram Stoker Awards Weekend, so you're going to think that what I'm about to tell you is complete bullshit. It's not. It's true.|
We are going to have the most amazing goody bags ever seen at a Stoker Weekend. Ever. So amazing, in fact, that I never even had to open to unsolicited goody bag submissions. We have that many books - and the bags will pretty much be all books. No pencils and flyers and silly buttons to be found here. This is the kind of goody bag I've always wanted, so it's the kind I made sure to put together.
And for all of you out there who think the only horror being published today comes from houses with dedicated lines, like Leisure and Kensington, and from small specialty presses, here comes a pleasant surprise: Random House, HarperCollins, Pocket Books, Penguin and a host of other NYC bigshots have ponied up horror books that will not only set the record straight but make horror novelists everywhere happy to know that their target markets aren't quite as limited as they think.
Seriously, the worth of the goody bags alone will more than make up for for the price of admission to the conference. So what are you waiting for? Sign up already!
See you in June. Bring an extra suitcase.
