It’s Rondo Awards time again, and we’ve picked up two nominations!
Frankensteinia is up for “Best Blog”, and I am very proud to share a “Best Article” nomination with my friend and colleague George Chastain for The Movie Monster Art of Feg Murray, our illustrated profile of the syndicated cartoonist who celebrated the classic Hollywood Monsters back in the 30s and 40s. The Feg Murray article was serialized here last November.
The Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards — “honoring the best in classic horror research, creativity and film preservation” — are entirely fan-based. YOU pick the winners! The ballot is huge, with multiple nominees in 35 categories, and you are invited to vote in as many or as few categories as you are comfortable with. It’s all done by email, just click through, follow the simple instructions and VOTE NOW!
Should you wish to support us, vote Frankensteinia in Category 19, Best Blog, and vote The Movie Monster Art of Feg Murray, by Pierre Fournier and George Chastain in Category 13, Best Article.
You may also wish to join me in supporting The Shelley-Godwin Archive in Category 18, Best Website. This is the library partnership site where Mary Shelley’s complete handwritten manuscript for Frankenstein is digitized, fully searchable and annotated. It is a major piece of Frankenstein scholarship that deserves the support of the Classic Horror community.
Voting for the 13th Annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards closes on April 19, with all the winners announced shortly thereafter. Awards will be presented at Wonderfest in Louisville on May 30th.
Vote NOW, and thank you for your kind support.
