Noted with interest that tonight's Jeopardy had a category about the Stoker Awards. I've been on a Stoker jury and am a voting member for these very awards as they're put out by the HWA, so it was kind of neat to see that.
But, what's an award anyway? I also today noted a writer I know lists himself as a best selling author on his Facebook page. Best selling my ass. He's an honorary member of Obscurity Press. As far as I'm concerned, you're not a best selling author unless you're on the New York Times best seller lists. This guy, not even close.
