NEW INTERNATIONAL HORROR GUILD AWARD JUDGE: Ann Kennedy
I’m very pleased to be one of the first to announce that my wife, under her professional name of Ann Kennedy, has agreed to be a judge for the International Horror Guild Awards. For those who don’t know, Ann has been active in the field as the publisher and editor for Buzzcity Press for many years—in fact, we met through Buzzcity Press. She has published numerous first or second stories by authors who have since become pretty well-known, such as Yvonne Navarro and Daniel Abraham. I should also note that she’s been a cohort and “silent” collaborator on every anthology I’ve ever done. Work from her magazine The Silver Web won numerous awards, including the British Fantasy Award, and appeared in many year’s best anthologies. Books published by her press included my own Dradin, In Love in 1996 and Michael Cisco’s IHG Award-winning The Divinity Student. Material for her consideration should be sent to: POB 38190, Tallahassee, FL 32315 (firstname.lastname@example.org). For more information on the IHG awards, visit their website.
