Check out his blog at http://alasdairstuart.com/ follow him on twitter @AlasdairStuart and grab a copy of his book The Pseudopod Tapes Volume 1 and preorder Volume 2 by backing the kickstarter campaign.

Pseudopod wants to congratulate Karen Bovenmyer on receiving the Mary Shelley Scholarship from the Horror Writers Association.

Lisa Morton, HWA President, said “We believe these recipients represent the future of the horror genre, and we’re very proud to be able to assist them in reaching their educational and professional goals,” Applicants to the scholarships were required to submit educational plans and/or essays, which were evaluated by committees. This year marks the third year that HWA has provided scholarships. The scholarships will re-open to applicants in early 2017.

Karen Bovenmyer earned an MFA in Creative Writing: Popular Fiction from the University of Southern Maine. She teaches and mentors students at Iowa State University and serves as the Nonfiction Assistant Editor of Escape Artists’ Mothership Zeta Magazine. Her short stories and poems appear in more than 30 publications and her first novel will be available Spring 2017.  Listen for a story from her on Pseudopod in early 2017. Halloween is also her birthday, so go congratulate her, wish her a happy Halloween, wish he a happy birthday, and go read her personal essay up on our kickstarter today.
