Winner: Interstate Love Affair by Stephen Graham Jones (From Three Miles Past)
Runner up: Nightsiders by Gary McMahon
I clearly remember pulling my truck over into the ditch just outside Shallowater, Texas so I could start writing this story. So cool that it’s left Texas, left America. So cool that people are reading it. Thanks, This is Horror nominators, and voters. And thanks to Nightscape for running this story. Long live dudes who swing small puppies around on needlessly fancy leashes, then let those puppies drift up into the night sky, reaching heights they otherwise would have never known. Not that I particularly want to meet those dudes anywhere but on a page.
