Awards (Updated)

First, a very big congratulations to the Derringer winners.

Second, I'm pleased to say the cover art for BEAT to a PULP: Round One is a nominee for a Spinetingler Award Best Cover. Of course, all credit goes to James O'Barr for the marvelous art and John Bergin for the graphic design. Thank you, both.

Update: Just got the word Round One has received a nomination for best antho. Also nominated were folks like Otto Penzler, Bill Crider, James Ellroy, Todd Robinson, Steve Weddle to name a few. Whew! That's cool company.
