Cinema Knife Fight’s fearless leader takes the stage in New Orleans for his acceptance speech.

Cinema Knife Fighter L.L. Soares was one of the winners last weekend in New Orleans at the Horror Writers Association (HWA)’s Bram Stoker Awards banquet. Soares was a finalist in the “Superior Achievement in a First Novel” category for his book, LIFE RAGE. He was a Stoker Finalist once before, for the 2009 Award in Non-Fiction for the Cinema Knife Fight column he writes with Michael Arruda. He did not win at that time.

In a dramatic turn of events, CKF staff writer Peter N. Dudar (Me and Lil’ Stevie) was also a finalist in the same category for his debut novel A REQUIEM FOR DEAD FLIES. Both novels were put out by Nightscape Press, and were the first two novels that the new press released in 2012.

In movie-related news, THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, won the Stoker for Best Screenplay.

A good time was had by all. Congratulations to all of the Stoker Award winners this year (shown below)!
