I’m sure most of you know my good friend, author Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., from his work, and from the Lovecraft eZine video chats. Joe edited a Thomas Ligotti tribute anthology recently titled The Grimscribe’s Puppets. I’m proud to announce that The Grimscribe’s Puppets is on the 2013 Bram Stoker Awards® Preliminary Ballot!
I hope it goes all the way, because this book deserves it. Joe deserves it, the authors deserve it, and Thomas Ligotti sure as hell deserves it.
Voting for nominations to the final ballot runs until FEB 15th.

“Joseph S. Pulver, Sr. has done it again! After A Season in Carcosa, last year’s excellent anthology inspired by Robert W. Chambers’s horror stories, he’s back with another tribute: this time to a contemporary cult figure, Thomas Ligotti.”— Dejan Ognjanovic “RUE MORGUE MAGAZINE”
By the way, if you’re a fan of the new HBO show True Detective, you really ought to read A Season in Carcosa.
I’d also like to congratulate a few other friends who are on other Preliminary Ballots this year:

- Ross E. Lockhart, for Tales of Jack the Ripper
- Laird Barron, for The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All and Other Stories
