Winner: Crystal Lake Publishing
Runner up: ChiZine
2013 was and will always be an amazing year for Crystal Lake Publishing.
The idea was to start the year off with a bang and just keep going full speed.
We kicked off with the For the Night is Dark anthology and went on to publish books by Paul Kane, Daniel I. Russell, Kevin Lucia and Gary McMahon, as well as the Fear the Reaper anthology which included the late, great, Rick Hautala.
2013 also witnessed the start of several projects coming out this year, and the start of some amazing friendships. Promoting quality dark fiction, its talented authors and the best damn genres in the world is what makes all the hard work worthwhile.
Thanks to everyone who voted and played a part in Crystal Lake’s success, and to This Is Horror for the opportunity. I’d also like to thank everyone who supports horror/speculative fiction and its authors. You guys are the best. Continue to support small presses and keep the genre moving forward.
I’ve got big plans for 2014, and I hope you’ll be a part of it.
