Short correction. King hasn't been nominations for the 2003 Horror Writers Association's "Bram Stoker Awards" yet. What happens is that HWA members make recommendations over the course of the year. Books, etc. that receive enough recommendations go onto a preliminary ballot, with any additions from an Additions Jury who can put things on if they believe they are significant but have been omitted.

At the first part of the year, the preliminary ballot goes out to HWA members, who then pick the top three in each category. The election committee then tallies these votes and puts together the final ballot.

So, King has received two recommendations but they are not yet nominations. That won't happen until the final ballot is collated.

Thanks to Bev Vincent for this correction.
