The Bram Stoker Award was the first American award to recognize outstanding achievement in horror/dark fantasy writing.
The Stoker Awards, presented annually by the HWA (the Horror Writers Association, previously known as the Horror Writers of America), are given in a number of categories.
The first winners for best novel (1988) were Stephen King (Misery) and Robert McCammon (Swan Song).
The awards are named for the Irish author, Abraham (Bram) Stoker (1847-1912), author of the gothic novel Dracula in 1897.
