In light of these comments, I decided to add a few names to the Preditors & Editors polling that's currently taking place. Here's the list of my inclusions with pithy explanation:
Todd Robinson, Editor, Thuglit. Mr. Robinson was hands down the best editor of last year, still delivering the goods with the final issue of Thuglit.
Vote for Todd Robinson here.
Bill Crider created the most disturbing tale of the year with “The Quick ... and The Dead.”
Vote for Bill Crider here.
I included our BEAT to a PULP: Round One in two categories: Best Anthology of the Year and James O’Barr for Best Artwork.
Vote for Best Anthology here.
Vote for James O'Barr's outstanding artwork here.
I see where other kind souls added Keith Rawson's "Life on the Mesa," Chris Holm's "A Rip Through Time," Dave Zeltserman's "King," and "The Killing on Sutter Street" by Paul S. Powers.
