Yet more good news this way comes. Shadow Show has been nominated for the prestigious Shirley Jackson Award. This is a super-cool honor for me and my co-editor Mort Castle (Affectionately known as “Mort-o,” and “The Castle of Death”).
Summed up, the Jackson Awards recognize outstanding achievements in the literature of psychological suspense, horror, and the dark fantastic. The award is named, of course, for the great Shirley Jackson. Interesting aside: Ray Bradbury included a Shirley Jackson story, “The Lottery,” in the first anthology he edited, Timeless Stories for Today and Tomorrow, back in 1952.
Here is a complete list of the 2012 nominees.
