Bram Stoker Award

The Bram Stoker Award is presented for "superior achievement" within the genre of Horror, an annual award by the Horror Writers Association. Winners are selected by a ballot of the active members and the decision to steer away from "best novel of the year" is a carefully considered one which occasionally results in a tie for the winning novel.
