Hmm. I’d have to read the bylaws to figure out why, but it appears that “The God of Discord” will not make the HWA’s Stoker Award preliminary ballot. My guess is there’s a certain number of top picks that make the ballot and the recommendation list had been updated again since last time I checked, so a lot of works with the minimum requirement of five recs didn’t make it. Eh. Whatever.
I just wanted to mention that before the ballot officially comes out so maybe I won’t look like a complete moron.
Folks over at Shocklines are being very kind in recommending my books to a librarian looking to stock his shelves with werewolf fiction. That’s nice, but adds to the frustration about Shara still not being available from Scrybe Press. If I wasn’t a nice guy I’d suggest you e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and nag him about getting the book out.
