The horror book awards

The Toronto-born Craig Davidson, writing under the name Nick Cutter, has picked up the first annual James Herbert award for horror writing.

The Troop (2014, a new acquisition for the Lennoxville Library, filed under Cutter’s name!) features a group of Scouts on a camping trip.

Herbert died two years ago; his daughter was one of the judges. “My father would have chuckled in his chair; his fans will love it. And you’ll never go camping again,” she told the BBC.

The award’s shortlisted titles include M.R. Carey, The Girl With All the Gifts; Frances Hardinge, Cuckoo Song; Andrew Michael Hurley, The Loney; Josh Malerman, Bird Box; Kim Newman, An English Ghost Story.
