2019 Specialty Press Award Recipient Named
The award will be given during this year’s Bram Stoker Awards ceremony, taking place at Stokercon in Scarborough U.K. from April 16 through April 19, 2020.
HWA, the premier organization of writers and publishers of horror and dark fantasy and home of the iconic Bram Stoker Awards®, presents the Specialty Press Award annually to a publisher whose work has substantially influenced the horror and dark fantasy genres. HWA employs a hard-working committee for the selection process and recipients are chosen through stringent criteria, including not only the quality of their releases, but also weighing the proper long term treatment of their authors and staff.
“I’d really like to thank the Horror Writers Association for giving me this honour. I honestly can’t believe that SST has won the HWA Speciality Press Award, it really means the world to me. To be able to do something you love for a living and then to be given this incredible award by people you respect and admire truly is an honour. Thank you all so much!” —Paul Fry
