Glad to pass along the news — the Horror Writers Association confirmed they’ll be at this summer’s Pacific Northwest Writers Association’s conference in Seattle. Great to have the HWA in house (btw, the 2013 Bram Stoker Award recommendations are currently open). In case you hadn’t heard, the Stokers and the World Horror Convention are in New Orleans this year, June 13-16th.
This July the PNWA’s keynote speaker will be Greg Bear, author of many novels including the recent Hull Zero Three (Orbit), Halo: Cryptum and Halo: Primordium (Tor) and co-founder of San Diego’s Comic Con. You can find out more about Greg here. Be sure to check out his bio. This past year the HWA gave lifetime achievement awards to Clive Barker and Robert McCammon. You can find out more about the HWA here and the PNWA here. Early registration for the PNWA conference runs until April 1st.
