#HorrorForLibraries Giveaway: The Angel of Indian Lake by Stephen Graham Jones
RA for All: Horror
by
1w ago
Today I have an ARC from a book that I I called "a gift" in the January 2024 issue of Library Journal; a title that along with the first two books in the trilogy will be read for generations; a trilogy destined to become a classic ala The Stand by King. Details below but first, the rules on how to enter: You need to be affiliated with an American public library. My rationale behind that is that I will be encouraging you to read these books and share them with patrons. While many of them are advanced reader copies that you cannot add to your collections, if you get the chance to read them ..read more

2023 Horror Book Highlights by Me via The LineUp
RA for All: Horror

2M ago
One of my favorite writing gigs is my 4x a year column for The LineUp. I love it because it is one of the only times I can write directly to readers. Just about everything I am paid to write is meant to be read and used by library workers. But 4x a year, I get to speak to voracious readers directly. Two columns a year are my choice. In 2023 I did a preview of the first ever Middle Grade Stoker Award by highlighting the finalists and giving them adult readalikes in the Spring, and in the Fall I highlighted some of the best Horror cover artists. My other two columns are wrap-up pieces. Every Sum ..read more
