Thrillers, Killers 'n' Chillers wins coveted Best Fiction Magazine Award


A few weeks ago, I posted here to say that my sister blogsite Thrillers, Killers 'n' Chillers was nominated in the Preditors and Editors readers' poll to find the favourite webzine on the Net. Now, I must say that the site is primarily aimed at readers of Horror and Dark Fiction, so TKnC was in a more favourable position than some of the other crime/noir sites (some of them that I would quite happily have voted for myself) due to the fact that a pretty large quota of TKnCs contributors are writing in the horror and dark fiction genres. Well, it's with great pride and with great gratitude that I announce that TK'n'C did indeed win the coveted first place position, beating off some pretty damn fantastic competition along the way. I don't claim that TKnC is better than they are, maybe it just had more voters. Have a look here for confirmation of the results:

Now then, I like to think of myself as a humble and self-effacing kind of guy, so I don't want to take all the praise or adulation. I want TKnC's contributors, its readers and supporters to bask for a moment in the glory. Without any of you TK'n'C would be a pretty boring place to visit.

Thanks to everyone who voted. Thanks also to Col Bury for all his hard work in making the site as great as it is. And thanks to Preditors and Editors for bestowing the award on TKnC.

Congratulations, Matt. A site well worthy of the award. Both you and Col run a steady ship and I thank you both for publishing my work these past few months or so. Looking forward to, hopefully, meeting you in April at the book launch(Work and visitors pending.)

Thanks again for a great site, David.

Bloody well deserved by the both of you. I think i probably speak for a lot of us when i say that we wouldn't have voted for you if we didn't think the site was worth it, and it very definitely is!

Thanks chaps. It's a great achievement and the pride is only now sinking in. What an achievement to have gained so many friends and supporters in one short year. Thanks to everyone who voted.
