P&E 'Best of 2010' Results...Unbelievable!

Well, it was just nice to be nominated, but from the 32 nominees, I'm flabbergasted to announce that I actually won the 'Best Magazine/ezine Editor 2010'.

I humbly accept this award on behalf of Matt and Lee, as a reflection of the joint efforts we all put into running the site. (Final standings here)

Following on from our win in 2009, Thrillers, Killers 'n' Chillers, itself, did really well again, bagging 4th spot out of the 53 nominated fiction-zines. (Final standings here)

Other notable successes were...

Best horror short: Paul Brazill's 'Thump' (TKnC) came 13th out of 62 stories. 'What Doesn't Kill You' (Spook City) by Anthony Cowin finished 8th, and Jodi MacArthur managed two in the top 20 with 'Spindled Souls' (Flashes in the Dark) and 'Pillow Talk' (BEAT to a PULP).

In the other shorts category - Mr Brazill was at it again, making the top ten with 'Anger Management' (Powder Burn Flash). And another TKnC story came in at number 14 - 'Rigor Mortis' by Stephen D. Rogers.

I must add that I can think of many outstanding stories, ezines and editors who were not nominated... so next year let's ensure all your faves are in with a shout.

A massive thanks for all who took the trouble to vote and comment.

Regards,
Col

Congratulations, Col! A weekend of celebrations, perhaps?

Col Bury said...

Thanks, Lou.

Just finished a week of nights, so you guessed right!

Matt Hilton said...

Well done Col. You deserve it, mate. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy...uh, well, actually...LOL

No, seriously, you've worked damned hard to establish and maintain TKnC as the success it has become and it has grown to be synonymous with you as a top writer and top bloke. Thanks for everything you've done bud, now go bask in the accolades.

Matt,
Your such a selfless, humble chap. If you hadn't started the site in the first place then none of this would have happened, and I would probably still be a 'secret writer' showing the odd thing I'd penned to me mum!
So thank YOU, mate!

Respect,
Col

I know "your" should have been "you're" - being an editor 'n' all. :-)
Damn tyops!

Paul D. Brazill said...

Congratulations!

Sue H said...

Well done, Col! I hope this is just the start of a run of really good 'happenings' for you on the literary front!

(just don't forget us 'also rans' when you make it big!) ;-)

Well done, matey!! Couldn't have happened to a nicer and genuine bloke!

Nice one, Col!

CekaTB said...

re-SPECT!
Yahoo! Well Done Col and Crew! Glad you reproached yourself for the typo though, you know what I'd have had to say about it.
Gallop on, Col, the field's all yours and there's nobody in front ...

AJ Humpage said...

Excellent, Col, well done mate. Keep up the good work!

Col Bury said...

Dave, you've been with me every step of the way, 'n' vice-versa, pal. Good things await you my friend.

Ceka, I knew you were coming so I corrected it sharpish! I'm galloping alright, just hope I don't fall off...

AJ, thanks for popping over.

Adrian M said...
