The Horror Writers Association has announced the preliminary ballot for the 2016 Bram Stoker Awards. I was delighted to learn that Sylvan Dread: Tales of Pastoral Darkness has been selected as one of the books in the Superior Achievement in a Fiction Collection category.

The final ballot will be announced later this year and the awards themselves will be given out at StokerCon 2017 in Long Beach, CA. I want to express my appreciation to the HWA for this recognition and also extend my congratulations to the many fine talents with whom I share this ballot.

Happy New Year.

As we approach the one-year anniversary of the release of The Benighted Path: Primeval Gnosis and the Monstrous Soul I confess to still being incredibly proud of this book. It seems to serve as both a summation of esoteric insights I gleaned throughout my life and also a portent of writings and endeavours yet to come. The Benighted Path has been very well received and I hope that future readers will encounter it as their fate wills.

Copes of the book are still available from Theion Publishing, JD Holmes, Watkins Books, and elsewhere.
