Post-Stoker Roundup and a look at the TOC for Not All Monsters!

Well, the last couple years have seen a fair amount of ups and downs, but something mighty impressive will have to happen to surpass the thrill of seeing Sara Tantlinger win a Stoker Award for her book of poetry, The Devil’s Dreamland. You can read Sara’s own re-cap HERE at her website.
