I appreciate awards lists like this one because they typically introduce me as a reader to new fiction to add to my ever-growing to-be-read pile. As a writer, I get to see the names of publishers, editors, and podcasts that garner the respect and admiration of the horror community.

The Novel of the Year is I WISH I WAS LIKE YOU by S.P. Miskowski. This one is already on my to-be-read pile because it was also nominated for the Bram Stoker Award. With one of the best opening lines I’ve read, I WISH I WAS LIKE YOU is about a woman trying to solve her own murder.

The runner-up novel, IN THE VALLEY OF THE SUN by Andy Davidson, is another interesting horror find set in dusty West Texas. This one is again already on my to-be-read pile because it was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award in the First Novel category. Reading the prologue, I was immediately struck by the immense talent of the author Davidson. Beautifully dark and descriptive.

Anyway, here’s the list of winners and runners-up in the eight categories. I linked the titles to either their Amazon page or their websites.
