HWA Lifetime Achievement Award winners named

The Horror Writers Association has chosen two long-time icons of the genre to receive the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award this year. The award, given in recognition of the recipient’s overall body of work, will go to Ellen Datlow and to Al Feldstein.

Ellen Datlow is unquestionably one of the most influential editors in the history of the horror genre. Her long-running The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror (which she co-edited with Terri Windling, Kelly Link, and Gavin J. Grant), and, more recently, The Best Horror of the Year have helped define the art of horror writing since 1988.

Al Feldstein is one of the most influential figures in the history of horror comics and graphic novels. Al arrived at the legendary company EC Comics in 1948, and went on to serve as one of the chief editors of EC’s ‘New Trend’ series, which included Tales from the Crypt, The Haunt of Fear and The Vault of Horror.

The Lifetime Achievement Awards will be presented on June 18 as part of the Bram Stoker Awards presentation in Long Island. The awards highlight an entire Stoker Awards Weekend, 16-19 June at the Long Island Marriott Hotel and Convention Center. For more information on the Stoker Awards Weekend, please visit the website.
