2023 HWA Lifetime Achievement Awards – Locus Online


The Horror Writers Association (HWA) has announced Mort Castle, Cassandra Peterson, and Steve Rasnic Tem as recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award, given annually by the Board of Trustees to “individuals whose work has substantially influenced the horror and dark fantasy genres.”

The Lifetime Achievement Award, presented periodically to an individual whose work has substantially influenced the horror genre, is the most prestigious of all awards presented by HWA. It does not merely honor the superior achievement embodied in a single work. Instead, it is an acknowledgment of superior achievement in an entire career. While this award is often presented to a writer, it may also be given for influential accomplishments in other creative fields.

The 2023 Stoker Awards final ballot was previously announced. Winners will be honored at a gala during StokerCon 2024, to be held May 30 – June 2, 2024 in San Diego, CA. For more information, see the Stoker Awards website.
