It's award time again for writers....

Well, it's the end of the year and for genre writers this means frantic scurrying to read and nominate all those books and stories you never had the chance read all year long. And for someone like myself who writes in multiple genres, and is a member of multiple writer organizations, it means a lot of eye strain!

With that in mind (and because a few people have nudged me to get my ass in gear), I am also posting that I have a couple of works eligible for awards, in the horror and science fiction/fantasy categories. So, if you're reading this, and you're part of the HWA or the SFWA (or even the Thriller Writers!), please feel free to take a gander.

"The Lazarus Effect" is a weird urban fantasy that involves people facing the possible end of the world when zombies and religion collide. It's out now in the latest edition of Cemetery Dance (#74/75, the big double issue). If you're a member of either organization, you read it for free here: http://www.jgfahert…
