HWA Specialty Press Award Goes to ChiZine Publications

Chasing the Dragon by Nick Kaufmann

It’s about time! The HWA has announced its annual Specialty Press Award will go to ChiZine Publications, publisher of my 2010 novella Chasing the Dragon (above), as well as lots of other great, dark, weird novels, novellas, collections, and anthologies!

According to the press release, which you can read in full here:

“Among the many small presses publishing dark fiction, ChiZine Publications stood out this year with its list of impressive releases and continued dedication to the horror genre,” said Marge Simon, HWA’s Board of Trustees Chairperson.

ChiZine Publications (CZP) sprang out of the successful, which began presenting fiction and review in 1997. Since its inception in 2008, CZP has published more than 90 books by authors including Christopher Golden, Stephen Graham Jones, Gemma Files, Tim Lebbon, Nancy Baker, Tom Piccirilli, Helen Marshall, Michael Rowe, Geoff Ryman, Robert Shearman, Melanie Tem and Steve Rasnic Tem. Their philosophy is “to startle, to astound, to share the bliss of good writing with our readership.”

The award will be presented May 9 during the Bram Stoker Awards Banquet in Atlanta, Georgia, as part of the World Horror Convention. Big congratulations to CZP masterminds Brett Savory and Sandra Kasturi! This kind of recognition is a long time coming!
