Yesterday we announced the winners of the This Is Horror Awards 2012. Joe Hill picked up awards for Comic of the Year – Locke and Key with Gabriel Rodriguez – and Short Fiction of the Year – In The Tall Grass with Stephen King.
A delighted Joe had this to say:
I’m terrifically happy to see In The Tall Grass and Locke & Key: Clockworks snag honors from This is Horror. I know my collaborators – my Dad and Gabriel Rodriguez – feel the same way. And, damn, are we in good company. With choices like Cabin in the Woods for film and The Weird for anthology, this is a list that marks what a great moment it is for lovers of dark fantasy and horror. The genre has never been more playful, more entertaining, or had so much to say about the fraught, dizzying times. The only thing more exciting than the last wave of stories is the next one about to crest.
Our thanks to Joe for his comments and excellent contribution to horror.
