Bram Stoker Awards for Superior Achievement



The Horror Writers Association (HWA) was formed in the 1980s to bring together writers and others professionally interested in horror and dark fantasy and to foster a greater appreciation of dark fiction among the general public. To do so, HWA issues a regular newsletter, presents the Bram Stoker Awards and provides members with the latest news on paying markets both by mail and email. Recent efforts include a Recommended Reading List. As well, they have sponsored a series of successful members-only anthologies.

There are two basic levels of membership in HWA. Affiliate members receive the same publications and organization services as Active members and may recommend books and stories for the annual Bram Stoker Awards. However, Affiliate members may not vote on the awards or in the election of HWA officers. The Stokers were awarded at the HWA's annual meeting and awards banquet held in New York City on June 6, 1998.
