More HWA Awards

The Horror Writers Association (HWA) has announced two more 2016 award recipients:

Linda Addison is the winner of the 2016 Mentor of the Year Award. Introduced in 2015, the Award recognizes “a member who distinguishes herself in helping mentees, while serving in the HWA’s Mentor Program. The program seeks to help writers develop professional careers through the hands-on support of seasoned veteran writers.”

James Chambers is the winner of the Silver Hammer Award, presented for outstanding service to HWA “in recognition of extraordinary volunteerism.”

Addison and Chambers join recipients of the Specialty Press Award and the President’s Award, announced last week. For the Bram Stoker final ballot, see our prior post.

The awards will be presented during StokerCon 2017, held aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach CA, April 27-30, 2017. For more information, see the HWA website.
