It comes as something of a surprise because I don't really consider this a horror story, but maybe it is.
The 2007 results haven't been posted yet, but you can see past winners here. There is a link on that page that leads to a little discussion of D.G.K. Goldberg.
I guess I'm now offically an award-winning writer.
