Re: Stoker nomintation for The Grimscribe's Puppets

Excellent news. If we can't get Ligotti a much-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award at this year's Stokers, at least maybe we can get a few more people talking about him with this book.

Well deserved. Great tribute anthology.

Re: Stoker nomintation for The Grimscribe's Puppets

Congrats, Joe. I have the damn thing sitting right here on the table next to me in my "to read" pile, and yes, it's at the top. After all of the positive things that I've read about it I am certain it will not disappoint. Tim

Re: Stoker nomintation for The Grimscribe's Puppets

So it didn't win the Stoker, but happy to say THE GRIMSCRIBE'S PUPPETS just won the Shirley Jackson Award for Best Edited Anthology! I'll leave it to those more intimately associated with it to say more, but HUGE congratulations to Joe Pulver, publisher Tom Lynch, and the authors, most of whom are TLO members. YES!
