Straub, King win Stokers

I didn't watch the entire live stream of the Bram Stoker Awards, but two giants of the genre took home awards.

Peter Straub won the night's top prize: superior achievement in a novel for "A Dark Matter." He beat out my choice, Joe Hill's "Horns," but it's hard not to give the trophy to a legit master of horror.

Which could be why Stephen King nabbed the Stoker for superior achievement in a fiction collection for "Full Dark, No Stars." The book brings together four novellas with the central theme of relationships in peril. I highly recommend it.

Full results after the jump.
