tom-piccirilliTom Piccirilli was a two-time winner of the International Thriller Writers Award for “Best Paperback Original” (2008, 2010). He was a four-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award. He was also a finalist for the 2009 Edgar Allan Poe Award given by the Mystery Writers of America, a final nominee for the Fantasy Award, and he won the first Bram Stoker Award given in the category of “Best Poetry Collection”.

Author of The Last Kind Words: A Novel (Terrier Rand)Pentacle – A Self Collection, and The Walls of the Castle, he more than once managed to make my hair stand on end.  I would like to express my condolences to his Family at this time.
