About the Stoker Awards

Each year, the Horror Writer’s Association presents the Bram Stoker Awards for Superior Achievement, named in honor of Bram Stoker, author of the seminal horror work, Dracula. The Stoker Awards were instituted immediately after the organization’s incorporation in 1987. While many members, including HWA’s first President, Dean Koontz, had reservations about awards for writing — since the point of HWA was for writers to cooperate for their mutual benefit, not to compete against one another — the majority of members heavily favored presenting awards, both to recognize outstanding work in the horror field and to publicize HWA’s activities.
