Well done to Terry and the other two authors. It does seem weird that the other two are horror writers(I mean genre horror writers not horror writes as in really bad writers :D :D) Sounds like a good award to get does: World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement.

It's only awared to Authors considered to be masters of their craft, and Brian Lumley writes some borderland dark fantasy as does Peter Straub with his Eyes of the Dragon but more horror.

You have to have a fantastic imagination to write horror or indeed to be horrified :lol: :wink:

That's why children should write horrors :lol . I can come up with a lot of things but my writing skills are not so great yet, maybe someday who knows :D Well the only horrors in which you don't need an imagination to write are true stories and true stories really do horrify you!!!!
