An awesome showing of Australian talent on the preliminary ballot for the Bram Stoker Awards, recognising excellence in horror publishing. Fingers crossed they progress to become nominees!
Kaaron Warren for her short story ‘All You Do Is Breathe’ in Blood and Other Cravings.
Jack Dann as editor (with Nick Gevers) for Ghosts by Gaslight.
Paul Haines for his collection, The Last Days of Kali Yuga.
Rocky Wood for his non-fiction Stephen King: A Literary Companion.

Apologies for anyone I’ve missed!
